History of wine
History of wine, wine stories

We are interested in stories related to wine.

In our tours apart from wines and wineries we are interested in telling stories related to wine, with the bodcgas where they are made those wines and with the history of the area where they are located.

Many of our clients are Americans and enjoy learning about Spanish History immensely, and whether it is Roman or medieval better.

As they get into our vans, and after leaving something in Madrid, we try to keep our visitors entertained with many of our stories, some related to what we find along the way. It happens many times that our visitors have such a lively conversation that we let them interact among them. Because wines, wines tours and our wine tours are social.

We tell stories. And our visitors too. This is a Madrid Wine Experience.

Not only do we tell stories. Our visitors do too. And sometimes the stories they tell us leave us stunned. Yes. We are lucky people. We do something we love. And we also love getting visitors to enjoy an unforgettable experience.

Magellan and his return to the world in 1519.

An example is that we tell them the story of Magellan and his return to the world. We tell our version of how that adventure was in 1519. We have read an exciting version about the life of Magellan written by Stefan Zweig. In it the biographer shows the love he has for the character. And how angry he becomes when he writes he was killed on an island lost between Australia and the Asian continent. Filipino visitors of Winebus tell us that the one who killed him is considered a national hero in the Philippines. We extolling Magellan and Elcano for their 500th anniversary of their departure and the Filipinos remembering their hero who killed the target. Surprise right? There is always more than one version of the same story.

Fracking Lower oil cost.

Another story. We met an tremendously interesting executive of a  fracking company.

In our trips apart from drinking wines and visiting wineries we have quite a time in the car. This man tells us how fracking has caused the price of oil to have dropped considerably. We tell you about the concern that causes us to have small earthquakes as a result of fracking.

The experience does not end in the visit. In reality, the experience in many cases never ends because we continue to maintain a relationship through social media and Instagram.

Our visitor of Japanese origin.

Another story. A senior citizen of Los Angels of Japanese origin made two tours with us in different days. In one of them, after visiting a winery we went to pick mushrooms with our mushroom expert. This expert is a very odd, funny and entertaining man. He makes us climb unexpected places. We go up and down fences. I was concened that this senior man might be in trouble who was not a kid anymore a long time ago. But he enjoyed as much as any other else going up and down.

Our experience is made with a glass of wine in hand any time we can. But the best of our activity is the quality of people who come.
