Bernabeleva – where bears roam

For some time now there has been a buzz on the wine scene emanating from the west of Madrid. Boutique producers of old-vine garnachas have been making waves ever since two young pioneers scooped the coveted 100 points from Robert Parker in 2016.

Las Moradas de San Martín

Todo comenzó con una comida en la Vinoteca Moratín, en el centro de la ciudad. Habiendo pedido sardinas como entrante, la camarera sugirió que podríamos acompañarlas con un vino blanco de Madrid.
