ABOUT D.O. VINOS DE MADRID
D.O. Vinos de Madrid encompasses over 8000 hectares of vineyard surrounding the city of Madrid. With a history of wine production that can be documented to the XIII century but that probably precedes it, D.O. status was awarded to Vinos de Madrid in 1990.The region finds its vineyards in four sub-zones: Arganda, Navalcarnero, San Martin de Valdeiglesias, and El Molar, each producing singular wines with distinct personality that result from their different soil types and climate conditions. While there a over 15 grape varieties authorized by the DO, the focus of many winemakers is making wine based on Garnacha, Tempranillo, Albillo Real and Malvar
