Madrid: Wine Tasting Holiday

Spain's buzzing capital

Madrid Wine Tasting Holiday

In recent times the Spanish wine industry has really come onto the world scene with a whole new range of wine styles which have adapted to market demands and an enormous improvement in quality. No longer is Spain a producer of what people refer to as ‘cheap plonk’ but is now a serious producer of quality European wines. The Rioja of northern Spain and the Cava of Catalonia are the best known wines, but the rich red Ribera del Duero is making its mark too. Spain hasn't yet reached its enormous potential in terms of wine tourism however, with only a tiny amount of small businesses offering quality wine tours in Madrid. Hopefully that will soon change.
