A Wine Tour to Castilla La Mancha is like a summary of what Spain has to offer. It is the homeland of Don Quijote, the knight of the sad figure created by Cervantes, one of the most famous Spanish writers. In this private tour we will follow his steps through this area that is now starting to produce good quality wine after years of massive production.
La Mancha is about 2 hours from Madrid. You will leave Madrid in the morning around 9.00 am towards La Mancha admiring the scenery of this beautiful rural region along the way. You will visit two wineries, have traditional lunch and of course, see the windmills made famous by Don Quijote. You will also have the opportunity to taste the spectacular and famous manchego cheese accompanied by a good manchego whiteorred wine.
Food and wine are main characters in the life of La Mancha, which is well known for the quality of its cuisine, and the typical offerings produced in this area: cheese of La Mancha, olive oil, marzipan and saffron. 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.
This private tour combines excellent wines and beautiful scenery. You can combine this day trip with a Tapas Tour in Madrid or a private walking tour! Check out the links below or message us for more information.
