Here is another one of those inititives we love about Madrid! Small events in one of the neighbourhoods or ‘barrios’ that Madrid is famous for. Last month we brought ‘Tapapiés’ to you, now we are back with the ‘1st week of wines from Madrid’.
The region around Madrid is not an obvious choice when it comes to wines, but over the years we have discovered that it actually has a lot to offer. There are 44 wineries around Madrid which carry the D.O. or the ‘Denominación de Origen’ Wines from Madrid quality mark. No less than 21 wineries are open to visitors.
But from today until Sunday there is no need to leave the comfort of the city to try these local wines, as they are brougth to the central barrio of Conde Duque. 34 Establishments in this quaint neighbourhood present different wines from 14 different wineries, to which each of them adds a special gastronomic offer.
If you need another excuse beside trying some new wines to leave the comfort (and warmth) of your home this weekend, then let the charme of de Conde Duque persuade you! This neighbourhood is full of little bars and galleries, nice restaurants and undiscovered corners. You can find more info (in Spanish) on the events’ website, and a list of participating establishments on their facebook page.
