Miguel Ángel joined a very select group of guests for an incredible trip organised by Audemars Piguet, his Watch Partner. On a cool but sunny day in Madrid, the special customers met Miguel at Golf Club La Moraleja in Madrid where they were entertained with his warm-up and practice tips, followed by some individual instruction. After a short lunch the group headed off for the two-hour drive to the wine region of Ribera del Duero and specifically to the winery of Pago de Carraovejas.
The group were treated to a fascinating tour of the Winery that succeeds in combining traditional methods with a very modern and innovative facility all in the most stunning countryside surroundings. The highlight of the visit was the chance to taste a selection of the very best of the wines from Pago de Carraovejas.
Moving on just 25 minutes from the winery, the group drove to the Abadía de Retuerta Le Domaine, an Abbey dating from the 12th Century surrounded by its own vineyard and converted into a luxury hotel with just 30 rooms. That evening Miguel and the guests of Audemars Piguet enjoyed a 12 course tasting menu in the Michelin starred Refectorio restaurant, accompanied by excellent local wines, of course.
The following morning the group returned to Madrid and to La Moraleja where Miguel played 18 holes with the guests, rounding off an incredible trip and a perfect blend of golf, culture, amazing cuisine and lots of laughs.
Thank you very much, Audemars Piguet, for a great experience.
