What to Expect on Your Tour
This walking wine tasting tour takes place across four of Madrid’s best tucked-away tapas bars! You’ll visit family-run eateries to try delicious vermouth on tap, freshly sliced jamón paired with sparkling cava and hot-off-the-grill tapas washed down with full-bodied reds. Your expert wine guide will lead you through the complete Spanish wine experience, and by the end you’ll know exactly how to do tapas like a local (and properly order a glass of wine in Spain!)
Start your night off in true Madrid style—surrounded by locals as you sip vermouth and nibble on tapas. Your expert guide will let you in on the secret to this local aperitif tradition!
Next, you’ll be whisked away to a family-run deli and tapas bar that specializes in Spain’s greatest delicacy—jamón! Watch as it’s sliced right before your eyes by a master carver! You’ll enjoy melt-in-your-mouth Iberian ham with a glass of sparkling Spanish cava.
Afterwards, you’ll head to a hidden gem where you’ll taste homemade tapas paired with two delicious Spanish wines, a white and a rosé.
Then you’re off to another local tavern run by a family who makes their own wine! Over plates of sizzling shrimp and hot-off-the-grill tapas, your expert guide will lead a tasting of the family’s three red wines! You’ll finish with something sweet—an exquisite chocolate-covered fig paired with the bar’s own sweet red wine.
By the end of the night, you’ll know exactly what it means to do tapas like a local and will have a new appreciation for Spain—the world’s largest vineyard and the sleeping giant of the wine world!

Rave Reviews for This Tour
Carolyn led a fabulous tour through Madrid for Tapas + Wine! We made four stops - each unique with interesting food and complimentary wines! Each stop was best in class (e.g., jamon, croquettes). Carolyn was an amazing guide....fantastic history and insights on the city. Thank you!
Having taken a Devour Food Tour in Seville and loved it, we decided to join an evening Tapas & Wine tour in Madrid. So glad we did! It was fantastic. What a great way to get to know a city and the local and authentic locals and their cuisine… We Aussies love good food and wine and this tour did not disappoint. I will be recommending Devour Food tours to any of our friends who are heading off to Spain.
My best friend John and I have been traveling together for three decades, and don't usually do the "guided tour" approach to things. We're so glad we made an exception to that rule by doing the Devour Madrid Tour. Our guide, Carolyn, was super-excellent: friendly, informative, knowledgeable and funny. The restaurants we visited were packed, local places that we never would have discovered on our own and each of them served us great food and great wines. In fact, the amount of food and wine was more than we expected. All and all, it was a great value and a great evening. Would highly recommend this tour!
