On Saturday May 11th we go to the Malpica Winery from the Osborne Group.
This winery is located in the Extremadura road about 60 miles from Madrid.
This winery is special for several reasons. They ellaborate some great wines, and you perceive the Osborne brand in everything, their wines, their facilities, their speech. Everything starts with the Osborne bull “El Toro de Osborne”. Before arriving to the winery you can already notice its presence. Where else? On the road that leads to the cellar, of course.
The “Toro de Osborne” Is something very special and friendly for all Spanish. There was a time when all our roads were lined with billboards. Until they were abolished But they decided that the “toro” should remain. And the “Toro” is still in our roads. It is part of our landscape.
This brand, Osborne, and that logo is seen in each of its wines, its facilities, in their speeches. It transmits desire for perfection, elegance, beauty, personality, expertise.
During the visit we will see quite a good sized cellar, a very pleasant and didactic walk, on the elaboration of wine, about what the Osborne Group represents, and the way Osborne making wines. This is a very well prepared visit in which you realize that many people come to visit attracted by its charm. We will taste 3 of their wines, all of them pretty good. In a very appopiated room for tasting wines.
After the visit we go to eat at a restaurant in Navalcarnero (20 miles from Madrid). The cost of lunch is not included in the tour price but it will never be more that 20 euros per person. It is your option to have lunch with the group or going to another restaurant with different prices and quality.
After lunch we will visit the Wine Interpretation Centre of the town which is a blast. We can also some of us see the Wine Museum which isa succesful attempt to bring the world of wine through our five senses. Navalcarrnero is a gem that we have at hand from Madrid and that we forget we have, maybe because it is so close.
And if we still have time available we will have a drink in Segovia Square, one of the most original and prettiest squares of Spain.
