Reviews

The trip was well planned, and we had enough time to really enjoy everything… the entire day was great, and comfortable. Windmills were beautiful, the winery tours, tasting and education we received at La Bodega was absolutely wonderful. Our host was very personable, and had a wonderful way of educating us about the wine, grapes and our wine tasting buds/senses – this I especially felt was good because I have been to several wineries and this was very relaxed and non-pretentious – I learned quite a bit. We also met the parents of our host, and they gave us great big hugs! We loved this, it was such a friendly warm environment.. of course this was all about our timing! Not everyone on each tour will get a hug!

We had the most wonderful tour of the La Mancha wine country and windmills with Raul and Jennifer! We were in Madrid for a very short time and the windmills of La Mancha were on my husbands list of "must do's." Raul spent extra time visiting additional windmill locations at my husbands' request. The winery tours were exceptional and all private. Raul was very knowledgable about the region and the wine making process. This was by far the best tour we took while in Spain and Italy! Wish we had been in Madrid longer so we could have done other areas. We would highly recommend!
