Our guide, Eduardo, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about history, traditions, customs, architecture, and of course tapas and wine (he's a sommelier). Very worthwhile activity!
I'll preface this review by saying I'm a "beer guy" but I LOVED this tour. Carolyn took us to four places I never thought of walking into. They're the semi-hidden gems that might not look approachable to a tourist walking by on the sidewalk. Great wine and fantastic food. Worth every euro spent; should have done this my first night in town.
My husband and I consider ourselves foodies and wine lovers! This tour was absolutely amazing! There was so much to eat, drink and learn from our superb guide, Nick! Highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves food, wine and trying new things. Can't say enough good things about this tour... just do it! You won't be disappointed!
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!
