Madrid wine region
Madrid is not very well-known as a wine producing region. Despite this, excellent wines are produced locally. Old small wineries have found in old Grenache vines new inspiration, and new modern producers have brought innovation to this city.
In Madrid itself, a large number of tapas bars and restaurants offer wine from all over Spain and some of the best wine lists in the country are to be found here. We recommend when you plan your short-break that you consider joining one of our tour to wineries in Madrid.
Madrid is also close to some astonishing Cities like Toledo, Segovia, El Escorial, Avila or Cuenca. We find a very interesting 1 day activity to combine a visit to one of these Unesco heritage sites with a wine tour. We offer a Toledo Tour with a strong local gastronomic flavor. You can find more information about Toledo on the City´s official tourism site. Our Segovia tour has been designed following a similar logic. You can also find more information about Segovia on it official tourism site.
