El viaje es muy bueno. Se aprende sobre la región y sus origenes. Los paisajes son preciosos y las bodegas visitadas son de relevancia y hacen muy buen vino. El guía Quique (Enrique) es muy servicial y conoce bien todo. Lo recomiendo. Estaba algo vacilante al principio pero estoy agradecido de haber decidido ir. Vale la pena.
We decided that do a vineyard tour in Ribera del Duero region and the experience exceeded our expectations. We visited three bodegas/vineyards: Dominio de Cair, Val Soltillo and Legaris. The wine was exquisite: rosé and/or white and red. The local tour was done by Gourmet Madrid and the tour guide—Jorge— was great and knowlegeable. We were able to buy wine and ship it home. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you Jorge from Gourmet Madrid.
Quisiera que existieran mas estrellas para evaluar este tour , si tienen la oportunidad de estar en Madrid no se pueden perder este viaje , y si eres amante del vino por supuesto que estas obligado a ir .... La pasamos ufffffff y Enrique nuestro guía un super conocedor de la materia ...... desayuna bien porque eso si estarás tomando vino desde las 11 am hasta la tarde ..
This trip consisted of visiting 3 different wineries, all very interesting. The wine pours were generous, although some of the wines seemed a little young/unbalanced. There was a chance to buy some of the wines, but no hard-core sales occurred. The guides at the wineries were enthusiastic, and eager to share their knowledge. Our tour guide, Enriquez was very informative and passionate about the wines as well. The lunch was great, and a good value for a small price. The most confusing thing was the meeting spot in the morning. The address was very vague, and there was nothing to designate the open area as the meeting spot. Fortunately, the group found each other, as we had asked for directions at many of the store fronts at this street intersection, and not one person was familiar with the tour or company! This needs to be fixed.
This was a fantastic wine tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable. We went to 3 wineries and one of them had underground tunnels with wine storage. I would recommend this trip to everyone. My only suggestion would be for the guide who met us in Madrid to carry a sign for the tour. We had a hard time locating him.
Our tour with Jorge was amazing. Getting to tour modern and older traditional wineries made for a diverse experience and an authentic learning experience. We really enjoyed our lunch with Jorge and the others on the tour and our stop in Segovia was short, but allowed us to see the aqueduct and other sights in town. Jorge is personable and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed spending the day with him.
Traveling from an authentic Spanish wine cellar to a modern day winery, this tour was able to give a complete experience of wine making in Spain. The small group group of 4 allowed for personalization and really getting to know the people who devote their lives to their love, which is of course wine. You could clearly sense the tour guide's passion for wine making and his knowledge base and personal stories only added to our experience. The panoramic tour in Segovia was a beautifully added feature. It is a small town, but rich in history and culture with cobblestone streets and aqueducts. I will remember this day not only for the delicious wine, appetizing food, and beautiful scenery, but for the people that we met and time spent with them. If you don't want to stick out like a sore thumb, don't wear open toed shoes, even if it's hot!! They'll get you for that!
