Its vineyards are located in the Las Vegas region of southeastern Madrid. In May 2015, the first of its wines, Sanz La Capital, comes out with grapes from old Tempranillo vines in Madrid. A fruit red whose excellence in its youth stands out towards a project of past, present and future, continued with Sanz La Capital Roble.
“The freshness and balance of the oak seem ideal for the appetizer, while its roundness, softness and long aftertaste allow it to accompany a good meal,” explains Daniel Orusco, winemaker and Technical Director of Bodegas Orusco. “Sanz La Capital Roble has a palate and a frank aroma and leaves a friendly aftertaste,” says Emilio González, manager of Viva Madrid Restaurant, one of the establishments in the capital where the D.O.

Under the slogan ‘Madrilízate’, the image campaign of Sanz La Capital tries to get Madrid's public to identify with the wines of its region. Its renewed website www.vinossanz.com keeps the news about the brand up to date.
