Where will the wineries be?
We did two wine trips from Madrid with Winetourismspain during our 8 full days there. If I had anything to do over again, I'd do MORE with them and less on our own! Truly, we should have paid MORE for the trips to Ribera del Duero and La Mancha! I wish we had scheduled Toledo, the Madrid wineries, and maybe some private tours with them also. We were pampered from pick up at the hotel in the morning to our return at night. These guys know their business and take you places you would never find on your own! From perfect wines (with paired tasties) to gourmet meals (also with just the right bebida) to ad lib stops and professional guidance -- they are at the top of the profession! DO THIS if it's the only thing you do in Madrid! They even helped me with my Spanish at no extra cost!
We really enjoyed our tour to Ribera Del Duero. First, the communication with the company is really good. They actually respond to all emails and always on top of every detail. We also had a charming and professional guide which made the journey even better. The first winery we visited is a top notch operation. We learned the latest techniques in wine making. the wines were too delicious!!! And served with typical spanish Tapas. I truly recommend as a side trip from Madrid.
Our guide Raul's Peugeot van was the most comfortable van my wife and I have ever ridden in. He took us from Madrid to Segovia for a brief visit, then on to three wineries. At the first, we had an extensive tour interrupted by tasting one white wine with an appetizer, then luncheon with two red wines. At the second winery, we had a shorter tour, and at the third only the tasting. In all, we tasted one white and seven red wines, the latter including one of the finest we have tasted. From Raul and the vintners, we learned much about the Ribera del Duero wines, as well as about wine-making in general. The countryside we drove through was appealing, and the winery visits were unhurried.
