We go to Finca Loranque in Bargas, Toledo, and Puebla de Montalban on Saturday October 19. We had long wanted to do visit this nearby winery to Madrid and I think we chosed the best moment. The vintage time. They have just started to pick the grapes, and this is the moment when the winery begins to get into a frenzy activity if compared with the rest of the year.

It may be a very special visit. We go to a winery that may have one of the oldest stories in Spain. In fact there are documents that prove the existence of vines in the region in the XI th century. King Alfonso XIII of Spain had a closed connection with Finca Loranque and their owners. (Finca Loranque´s history) (in Spanish)

Today the winery belongs to Díaz Bermejo family who bought it in 1981. These new owners are the creators of what Finca Loranque is right now. They have kept many things from the past and they have managed to adapt to new times. In 2002 the new vintage of this project came up. The fine has 500 hectares. 42 of them are planted with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Merlot. (Finca Loranque´s Vineyards) (Finca Loranque´s winery) After the visit we will taste 3 of their wines that will allow us to understand all they will have explained in the tour.

We will have lunch in Consuegra in a restaurant they have already treated us wonderfully in the past. We have a closed menu of 18 euros (Additional price, optional, not included in the booking price), that with the wine of the winery we will sure have a spectacular lunch.

We will go afterwards to a tour to Consuegra, a village with breathtaking landscapes. There is an impressive castle and a few windmills that remain just the same as they were when Cervantes wrote “Don Quixote”. In fact in Don Quixote those windmills are mentioned. When you see these windmills the image of La mancha is grabbed in your mind forever. If we have the castle just beside the windmills the impact is even bigger. In a two word, something unforgettable.
