Wonderful Wine Adventures Madrid

Madrid a fantastic city to explore and enjoy some of Spain´s Fantastic Treasures of Art, History, Music, Architecture, Gastronomy & WINE! The spanish people value, appreciate and celebrate their culture and it is a special pleasure to be included in experiencing some of their wonderful traditions that make exploring Spain a real gift.

Whether it is taking a PASEO – a leisurely walk – enjoying the incredible parks such as Retiro or walking along the Paseo Prado and going into the museums to be amazed at centuries of incredible art by gifted artists famous around the world or wandering the streets adventuring into new areas to learn more of the local neighborhoods and their wonderful bars and restaurants you will always find more you want to discover and return to enjoy again and again!

A very special thank you to friends who made this trip very special – was a wonderful surprise during an afternoon Paseo to hear my name called out by Iván Leis Varela and to enjoy an afternoon taking in some of the incredible architecture and beautiful sites of Madrid – hopefully next time Sienna Leis can join in the fun always more to explore and enjoy – Muchisimas Gracias!
