La Mancha wine day tour from Madrid
Here is what you will live
La Mancha, known before as for its bulk wine, is surely one the emerging wine destinations in Spain starting especially thanks to its unique high quality wines. Moreover this is the land of Don Quixote, the knight of Miguel de Cervantes, one of the most famous Spanish writers. The goal of this tour is to mix the historic background of the region with its special wines!
Even if La Mancha is a wind swept, battered plateau (manxa means parched earth in Arabic) it remains a symbol of the Spanish culture with its sunflowers, olive yards, windmills, Manchego Cheese, wine making and Don Quixote.
We will trace back the steps of Don Quixote, and get immersed in a region full of tumultuous battles, where most of Spain’s Reconquista by the Catholic Kings took place. And we will do this..tatsing great wines! This region has also the largest vinyard suface in the world and sometimes while driving wherever you look it seems like a neverending green sea of vines or olive trees.
This massive amount of grapes has been mistreated for a long time, giving as a result a low quality production that was distilled for brandy or easy and cheaply exported in bulk by huge cooperatives to some other locations around Spain and overseas. But the natural conditions of the wine regions of Castile-La Mancha were (and still are) undoubtely so good (the omnipresent sun gives color and a higher alcohol content and the lack of rainfalls avoids deseases and concentrate sugars) and after becoming a part of the EU (1986) more and more vinegrowers and wineries started exploring these great possibilities.
With this tour you'll have a pick up and drop off service at your hotel, 2 wineries visits and tastings plus a traditional lunch. Obviously we will also visit one of the famous windmills!
