There are a thousand reasons to visit a winery. One of them is to find very good wines in an exceptional facility. This is the case of Bodegas Portia. Bodegas Portia is architect Norman Foster master piece on the sector of wine. I have no news that he has designed other wineries. On this case he has made a beautiful work. This visit is something you cannot ever forget.

I say some times that the wineries are the true cathedrals of the 21th century. On this case we might not talk about a cathedral but a Pyramid of the XXI century.

This winery belongs to the Faustino Group.

When you approach the winery you begin to realize the greatness of the work made by Norman Foster.

 

Its wines are at the level of the winery. This group is very successful in selling its wines in the most important markets around the world. We will taste two of them.

After having visited a palace of the XXI century we will go to the summer Palace of the kings of Spain before the XX th Century. We will visit the Palace of la Granja de San Ildefonso and its gardens. We will eat its tapas and wines in town. The town and the gardens are as nice as the Palace.

We pretend to do all that with a glass of wine in hand.

 

I think you should not miss it.

A visit to Bodegas Portia is something shocking. An impact as big as the one we had  when we visited the winery designed by Frank Gehry in La Rioja (Marqués de Riscal) I was so impressed  that since then you can see the image of the terrace of the restaurant of Marques de Riscal with the stunning village of El Ciego behind.

When I visited Bodegas Portia I had the same impression than in Marques de Riscal, except that since then I have visited many wineries and I appreciate even more when I see something extraordinary. This sensation of being amazed begins since you approach the winery, when you look at it from the outside. But it is even more impressive when you look at it on the inside. When you are in their facilities you may think that you have been transferred  to the Egyptian pyramids of. They transmit you a sense of inmensity and greatness.

When you visit this winery you realize about the growing importance of arquitrecture in the world of wine. Architecture is becoming a very useful tool of communication to transmit quality, originality, good taste, personality. We live in the world of Internet and in one unique global world market. An image was worth more than a thousand words. Now, with internet an image is worth more than 1000 times 1000 words. Architecture and wine are closely related.

I am sure  that Norman Foster is very proud of his work on this winery. Y have been told that he was paid 5 MM euros for this work. And I say that he deserves this amount of money.

The winery belongs to the Faustino Group. His wines are as good as they appear to be. A very high quality. When somebody goes to an striking winery it is hard to forget. In this case I would say it is impossible to forget.

Bodegas Portia is like a real slap in the face. As hard as I experienced visiting Marques de Riscal in Rioja, designed by the famous Frank Gehry, the architect that designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The impact was so hard for me that since I have as an image as a back screen on my twitter account of the terrace Marques de Riscal cafeteria in contrast with the amazing village of El Ciego.

It just happened the same with Bodegas Portia, with the difference that I have visited many wineries on the way. And I got dazzled. When you are getting close to the winery you already feel you are going to see something unusual.

When you enter you realize that what there is inside is much better than the outside. I would say it’s a pharaonic work.

Every day architecture and wine are more related.

And Norman Foster wanted to make his mark here. They say his fee was 5 MM euros for this work. And I say they are worth.

This is a winery from the Faustino Group. This group is a high quality wines warranty. We will taste 2 of their wines which are at the level of the winery.

Its hard to forget a visit to any winery in general. In this case I would it is almost impossible. 

When we finish the tour of the winery we will take the winebus and arrive in 50 minutes to Sepulveda, an amazing city with a very original square. Lunch would not cost more than 22 euros.

We would do a tour of the city (its history is very interesting)

And then we would go back to Madrid in order to arrive at 20h.

Can it be a better plan for this day in Madrid? I doubt it. As a friend says, a “planazo for being well fed and drunk”.
