Wine lovers, find time to visit a couple of the Madrid area wineries awarded special "Denomination of Origin" status.
The wine made around Madrid is so good, it merits its own appellation.
Spread among three main areas, there are 44 wineries which have been granted the Madrid Wines Denomination of Protected Origin. Of those, 21 open their doors to visitors, the majority of which give guided tours of their facilities and sometimes vineyards which explain the entire winemaking process and include tastings (a few go even further, with workshops and courses). Some are organic wineries whose family owners work the land hemselves and sometimes operate restaurants on the premises. The San Martín de Valdeiglesias area has 12 wineries, the Navalcarnero area five, and the rest in the southeastern area of Arganda. One of the most prominent in Arganda is the Bodega Real Cortijo de San Isidro, property of the Spanish crown for more than a century and designated a national historic-artistic landmark. It receives visitors every Sunday.
