We are making a wine tour to Finca Constancia and Toledo on Saturday September 14
This winery is on the road to Extremadura 60 miles from Madrid.
We have been on other occasions on this winery. There are several things that attract attention when visiting. This encourages us to repeat.
On one side this is a winery that belongs to the González Byass Group. This group knows a lot on wines and wine tourism in Spain. They have done in Bodegas Constacia something which is becoming a trend and is changing the image of wines of Castilla la Mancha in the world.
They have realized that Castilla la Mancha has wonderful conditions for winemaking. So they created a winery in Otero (Toledo). They have collected all the experience and know how of the group when creating this new generation winery. A very modern and attractive design. They are energy efficient and very respectful with the environment (water treatment, use of natural light)
The winery is in the midst of a spectacular vineyard in which the visitors have to go through when visiting the winery.
We are now in harvest and therefore on the best moment to visit any winery that has nice vineyards. They have 200 hectares of vineyard in which they have planted very different type of grapes. For more information visit. Finca Constancia
In Finca Constacia they are visitor oriented. Everyone who goes gets delighted.
We will taste at least 3 of their wines.
To see that huge vineyard with these cutting edge facilities, learn the history of the winery and taste their wines is an fantastic experience.
From there we will go to have lunch in La Puebla de Montalbán. We will do it on a pic nic modality in a place called Las Barrancas. Las Barrancas is a wonderful place. The great unknown even for those who live nearby.
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.
