O tour foi muito bom, nosso guia, cujo nome infelizmente esqueci e não posso mencionar, mas um rapaz jovem, era super competente, sendo um "wine maker", que nos esclareceu nos três vinhedos todas as peculiaridades de cada um deles, a história dos vinhedos, afora o fato de por semos muitos poucos integrantes ter havido uma relação muito boa entre todos.
Unbelievable trip. The three wineries were spectacular and very unique - each had very different scales of output, managment, history, facilities, etc. They were all beautiful settlings as well, ranging from royal to rustic. The owners or wine makers met us at each of the locations to provide extra insights about the types of wines they produce and how they produce them.
The meats and cheeses at each location were delicious and much needed because I couldnt stop myself from drinking too much amazing wine. It was such a pleasure hanging out with our tour guide Enrique. I learned a lot about Spanish wines and wine in general, but it was also lovely to hear from a local about Spanish culture, history, and language.
I feel like we lucked out going with a very small group just the 4 of us but Enrique seems very accommodating and it would be worth it to me just to drink wine in those settings.
The wine was wonderful, the wineries and wine makers were very interesting. Even better, we met and made friends with some of the other people on the tour. Enrique was quite knowledgeable but rushed us through the wineries and at the mid afternoon lunch. Enrique walked far ahead of the group and at one point, he was so far ahead of us, we didn't know which direction to go in the underground cellars. We ended up getting back to the starting point, an hour and a half earlier than what the tour description indicated. Enrique did have the restaurant put a candle in my slice of cheesecake and lead the group in a round of Happy Birthday, I did think that was sweet. I would take this tour again, but only if the tour guide was interested in conducting a less rushed tour.
OMG, this was an excellent tour. Our guide was Enrique, he was fantastic, knowledgeable, funny, personable, just a great tour guide.
We visited 3 different winery's and they were all incredible. The wines were delicious, the tapas were great and the education on how all of this was made is incredible. Have a good breakfast because you start drinking early!!!! Lunch was incredible, try the 4 course meal it is fanstastic!!! Take this tour it is the best !!!!
Wonderful day! I can't say enough about what a great experience this was. We went to three small, family owned wineries just outside of Madrid. Each experience was a bit unique. For example, at one we went into the vineyards. At another we toured the wine cellars, which were like caves. The presentation at each winery lasted the perfect length of time. We learned interesting things about each, but were never bored. The tastings were generous! After the tastings we enjoyed lunch at an excellent local restaurant. And our guide was terrific. Very friendly, spoke English well, kept us on track and entertained us with lots of information about the area and Spain in general.
