Tour Details

Join this tour to discover a centenary route in the heart of Madrid. We will visit 3 taverns (“taberna”) mixing tradition and modernity to uncover the origins of the ancient tradition of drinking Vermouth in Madrid. During this walking tour we will taste different kinds of Vermouth as well as fabulous Spanish wines produced in diverse wine regions.

Vermouth time (“La hora del Vermut”) as the tradition goes in Spain, means going out with family or friends to drink an aperitif before lunch time; generally speaking, around 1 pm since lunch time in Spain is later than in the rest of the majority of countries, usually around 2 or 3 pm. Originally, Spanish people used to drink Vermouth (a fortified aromatised wine). But nowadays, apart from Vermouth, people drink beer, wine, a spirit or any other drink increasing their hunger and preparing their body for an opulent meal!

This is a historic, fun and picturesque route where we will pair each of the Vermouths and the wines with delicious tapas from Madrid.

If you are a sybarite, love great wines and tasty food, you can’t miss taking part in this Vermouth and wine tasting walking tour! Cheers!

Furthemore, you will be guided by a highly experienced wine and heritage expert to enjoy the experience to the fullest!

Note: We can also run this tour in Spanish and French, apart from English and also tailor it according to your availability – contact us for further details: tours@colorfulwines.com

What our customers say about us!

  • 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 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!

  • AMAZING 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.

  • 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!!

  • FUN TOUR!
    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.

  • 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 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…
