But since you hear because e you appreciate good wine, adding some outstanding wineries into your Madrid day trip plans is probably in order.
In the Madrid wine region tour, there is a nice blend of traditional wineries and more modern and sleek operations. Wine has been made in Madrid since the 13th century so there is no lack of knowhow and expertise and in recent years wines from this region have been gaining popularity and awards.
On your way south heading to Madrid wine-producing region, there is a necessary stop: Chinchón. This little town feels like it has been frozen in time, with rickety old homes, quaint, cobbled stone streets, old churches, etc. But the main attraction is the town square which serves the dual purpose of bar terrace chill-out area and bullfighting ring, depending on the season. It is truly a sight to see and a uniquely Spanish phenomenon.
