Madrid has been producing wine since the first century B.C. when the Romans arrived and covered the entire peninsula with vineyards. With this history it is easy to understand that Madrid is a land of wines, of traditions, of culture and that it has begun to claim its place in the sector.
The Spanish capital has had its own denomination of origin since 1990. At the moment an area of more than 8,200 hectares is used for vines. There are 45 wineries and 2,850 wine growers. Madrid wines are internationally recognized for their quality and character.
Madrid region wines have the elegance and nuances required to produce some of the most award-winning wines in Europe. Soils and lands vary depending on the geography; brown, granite or clayey soils nourish different vine varieties, which absorb their personality.
