But one of the best pairings is yet to come. Golf and wine is the perfect combination of taste passion and beauty.
Given the high quality of Madrid’s wines, since 1990 the region of Madrid possesses D.O “Madrid’s Wines” (Designation of Origin). This is a type if geographical indication applied to a product where its characteristics are exclusively given by the geographical area in which its produced, transformed or elaborated.
One of the main three winegrowing areas is located in the south region of Madrid at Navalcarnero. There you can find a good quantity of wineries bonded to the D.O “Madrid Wines” where you can enjoy wine’s universe through wine tastings, workshops or guided tours in different languages.
To complete the experience, in the surrounding of the wineries you can find a wide range of gastronomic and leisure offers, which will allow you to address the world of wine form different points of view: the process of elaboration, the different trades required to produce wine and the different beautiful villages that have adapted their way of life to this sensory pleasure.
The route that we are bringing to you today is the wine route called “Camino de Reyes” (Kings Path), which reproduces the transit of the Austria’s and Bourbon’s dynasty in their path between Navalcarnero and Aranjuez. Within this route there are two wineries we wanted to point out as one of the best in Madrid’s region: Bodegas Andrés Díaz and Bodegas Ricardo Benito.
The first one is Andrés Díaz’s Winery, it’s a three generation family business winery, founded back in the XIX century located in the same town center of Navalcarnero. It has two facilities, one of them is where they make the wine, the other one is destined to the reception of visitors where the wine tasting take place and where you can buy their wine and other products.
The second one is Ricardo Benito’s winery, also located in the town center of Navalcarnero, founded in 1940, and just like Andrés Diaz’s Winery, they both follow an important family tradition. The visit to its facilities allows you to walk through the where the barrels are held, an impressive room where their big wine deposits are well kept until they are ready for drinking.
Very close to both wineries, barely 20 minutes away you can find The Lomas Bosque’s golf course. It opened its doors in 1973, with an 18-hole Par 72 course designed by Robert Dean Puttman. Located in a natural environment of incomparable beauty, with views to the Sierra de Guadarrama, one of Madrid’s natural wonders. It stands out because of its orography, which makes the golf players have to use all of the golf clubs, making it one of the most entertaining golf courses in Madrid.
