What will you find?

Leave central Madrid and head into the surrounding countryside, passing through the sleepy villages and meadows that typify the area. As you travel by air-conditioned minibus, your guide will talk to you about wines made in the area surrounding Madrid.

About 19 miles (30km) away from the capital’s center, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the Madrid's main winemaking area, known as Vinos de Madrid – a Spanish Denominación de origen (DO) territory. All wines produced here adhere to strict production guidelines so they have are able to proudly display the DO Madrid labels on their bottles – an indication of the region's high-quality wine.

The area boasts a real mix of traditional and contemporary wineries, all dotted around an area extending from the central mountain range to the Tagus River Valley. Visit three of the region’s best estates to sample quality red and white wines. Roughly halfway through your tour, your guide will give you several options for lunch (own expense).

First winery is family-run winery in the UNESCO-listed village of Aranjuez, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The estate is also home to a butterfly farm -- one of the largest in Europe.

Second one is a fourth-generation winery located on the site of an ancient Franciscan monastery. Produces a variety of red, white, rosé, sparkling and dessert wines.

Third one is a family-run winery located in one of the most traditional winemaking villages near Madrid. Boasting 44 acres (18 hectares) of organic vineyards, the estate produces wine from grapes ripened in traditional clay vats.

  1. This tour was the highlight of my trip, our guide, Ishmael was terrific and extremely knowledgeable. The wineries are unique and fabulous, and we never would have got to these places without the tour. Great day!
  2. it was honestly the most unique wine tour that I have ever taken, and I have been on wine tours all over the world. The tour meeting place for the tour is in between the atocha and achocha refe metro at la gloria cafe. The wine making process uses giant teracotta pots to ferment the wine! The "modern" version is a cement shape version where there is no door to empty the sediment. Its a must see for any wine enthusiast. The wines served were mostly of grapes unique grapes to spain, like a 100% tempornilla. At 2 of the vineyards, we actually got to try some of the wine straight from the barrel with the winemaker. The guide for the tour was wonderful as well. He translated for the wine makers and pointed out interesting sights along the way.. The tour was well worth the price and I highly recommend it.
  3. Very well done all around. Truly knowledgable guide, who also showed true interest in wine. The three wineries we visited gave very different views of the local region. The first was newer, just 10 years in business, but award winning and using both advanced and very hands on techniques. The ability to do barrel tasting there was great. The second had over 100 years in business, and was the largest producer of the three. Interesting operation, with antique clay pots still in use for much of the production. The third also had history, but changed hands, a fully organic winery that also produced great organic olive oil. Great choice of location for lunch as well. Highly recommended!
  4. A fantastic tour led by the knowledgeable and friendly Ishmael. We did a little sightseeing before visiting three great wineries, learnt a great deal about grapes, varieties and wine making and tasted some lovely and affordable Spanish wines. We finished the day by sharing a fantastic meal together ( an extra cost but very good value). Highly recommended for wine lovers.
  5. We loved this tour! Our guide, Ismael was excellent...fun, friendly and provided lots of information. Got to visit interesting wineries, taste some very good wine and finished the tour with a lovely lunch. I would highly recommend this tour.
