We have had the opportunity to enjoy 4 wine tasting sessions with Colorful Wines during our lockdown. Although our main purpose was to give us something different to do, it has been a great learning experience, Jimena makes it very educational with key facts and history as well as differences between each wine region in Spain. We learn about the types of grapes, the impact of the climate, the process, storage, etc. We are looking forward to our next virtual tasting and preparing for a real live one as soon as we can.
It has been an amazing experience to attend the virtual tours that Colorful Wines has been organising.
Each week Jimena takes you to a different region or presents a type of wine and it seems like you are there in Spain with her; you can imagine what would it be to visit those wineries and savour a glass of wine while enjoying magnificent scenery…
Then you get to try authentic gems from each region that I could have easily overlooked without Jimena’s expert guidance…
I can’t recommend you enough to join the next virtual tour, you will be hooked!!!
UNFORGETTABLE AND ENRICHING WINE EXPERIENCE!
After consulting a lot of companies offering wine experience in Madrid, we have finally decided to rely on Jimena for the organization of our corporate team building!
She organized an unforgettable experience for us based on “Aromas Workshop and Wine Detective Experience”, her knowledge about wine is enriching even for French “connoisseur”!
She managed also the organisation for privatisation of the location, accompaniment diner and even recommend us an excellent after party location!
Thank you once again for this memorable moment!
HALF DAY OF JOY
With a spare day in Madrid my wife and I found Jimena and her company for the perfect winery tour in Spain. I wanted a small winery and unique tour and that is exactly what I got. Her knowledge was vast and the small organic winery we visited was amazing. The perfect personalized small winery tour. I would highly recommend anyone in the Madrid area looking for a winery experience, look up Colorful Wines!
PERFECT OUTING. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Jimena put together a great half-day tour for me and my family. Along with her team, Jimena arranged for everything (including transport, tour, tasting, and light meal) so that we didn’t have to worry about anything other than enjoying our time. She was also happy to help us with tips and advice when purchasing wine from the cellar to take with us. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about wines, speaks (at least?) English, Spanish and French fluently and makes every effort to make the experience fun and memorable. Highly recommended!
GREAT FOR SPANISH SPEAKING PEOPLE AS WELL!
Jimena did an amazing job! We were so happy we went for half day tour to a family owned winery with her. She gave us a lot of great wine tips, we came back home with 3 cases of great wine! 3 main things that I’d love to mention:
1. she has tours on Sundays
2. she perfectly speaks English (and as far as I know French as well)
3. she had such a personalized service, we were very happy!
You will have great time and detailed information about wine (not Spanish only).
UNIQUE, GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC!
From hotel pick-up to drop-off, Jimena and team were just fantastic! She was thoughtful, accommodating and speaks great English! We really enjoyed the entire experience–the wine tour and tasting was great. We also had fun with a quaint and private stroll through Navalcarnero, including a wonderfully delicious and authentic lunch! Not a typical “tour” by any means–so very unique and genuine–we loved it! Well worth the cost.
AMAZING WINE TOUR!
We enjoyed an amazing, informative wine tour with Jimena (the owner) as our guide. She was knowledgeable and a lot of fun for my husband, two adult and two teenage children to have as our guide. We were picked up directly at our hotel which was convenient.
Our booking was last minute so it was fantastic that we were able to go on this day trip. The winery we visited was a 5th generation family. So glad we were able to fit this into our trip. So Memorable! Truly a must do!
GREAT TOUR OF MADRID WINERY
Jimena set up a spectacular wine tour for my girlfriend and I at a small, 5-generation winery outside of Madrid. We saw everything that goes into winemaking, from touring the vineyard and tasting grapes to the bodega where the wine is fermented in huge clay tanks and finally to the ancient cellar where it sits in bottles. We finished our tour with a tasting. Jimena did a great job translating and answering all of our questions. Thanks Jimena!
PERSONALIZED AND REWARDING! A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!
Combining colorful wines, family traditions, and exceptionally educated and caring hosts, Colorful Wines has created a once in a lifetime tour experience. My wife and I loved the complete personalized atmosphere. From the 5th generation family owned and operated vineyard, to the history of the region, we were continuously impressed and inspired. Jimena and Colorful Wines’ knowledge of oenology was outstanding.
AMAZING WINE TOUR!!!
My boyfriend and I did this tour together and we absolutely loved it! Jimena,the guide and owner of the company, made this tour personal and intimate. It was just the two of us and it was an up close and personal experience. We were able to see the vineyard, a historic cellar and taste the wines guided by a fifth generation wine maker. This experience is not something a large tour company with a lot of people would have been able to do. We highly recommend this tour. You will feel VIP!!
My 3 nieces and I recently enjoyed the Half Day Wine Tour with Jimena and Colorful Wines. It was a perfect day trip from Madrid and we really enjoyed our time with the owner of a local generational winery. Jimena was knowledgeable and a great tour guide/translator for our time together. I would highly recommend Colorful Wines and Jimena for a future wine tour.
AMAZING TOUR WITH COLORFUL WINES!!!
Our hotel front desk personnel at The Mint recommended Colorful Wines and we are so grateful they did. My husband and I had a great time touring the Jose Diaz E Hijos vineyards, winery and tasting the fabulous wines. Our half day excursion was a great personalized tour with Jimena and her driver. We learned a lot of the area and the wines. JImena is so personable, knowledgeable and fun. I’ve been on a few wines tours in Napa and this tour was so much more than others.
A WONDERFUL PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE
We decided at the last minute in Madrid to book a wine tour and Jimena could not have been more accommodating. She arranged on one day’s notice to take us to a small family owned Organic winery about 35 minutes outside of Madrid. We were promptly picked up at our hotel for the scenic ride to the vineyard during which Jimena explained to us the varieties of wines in Spain. Upon our arrival at the vineyard we were greeted by the owner’s daughter…
We did the local Madrid wine tour: “Organic Bodega near Madrid & Cervantes’ Birthplace”
Jimena was a fantastic guide, the winery is a very special place with Carlos the owner and his wife being the perfect hosts. Carlos with the history of the beginnings of their winery and a walk through the vineyard, finishing with wine tasting and parings. Lunch was fantastic! Tour of the town of Alcalá de Henares is very historic and small and a perfect ending…
I recently went with some friends to a beautiful winery near Madrid, and we experienced different wines (although my favourite ones are Rioja wines, I loved the wines from Madrid DO we tasted) and also gastronomic specialties. We absolutely loved it, it was a great experience! Jimena was a wonderful guide who showed us the area, described everything in depth and detailed all the wine characteristics. We tasted fabulous wines and the winery was really nice. Would love to repeat the experience…
We visited 3 vineyards in Madrid. Passion and Knowledge for wines are the main words that come to mind when I remember Jimena; she was an excellent guide to my family and friends. I recommend her 100% to do something different and unique in Madrid.
GREAT WINE TASTING EXPERIENCE!
We enjoyed a very unique tour and visit to a family-owned winery. It was a perfect 1/2 day tip from the city. Great wine, great guide, lots of history and knowledge!
Hosting a wine tasting at home can be fun and would allow you and your friends to have a wonderful and relaxed time. Moreover, you can discover the differences among several wines or grape varieties while sipping delicious wines.
If you love the wine world and have attended a wine tasting lately, you might have been trying to identify some aromas and flavours in the wines. You could have had the impression that is far too difficult (more…)
