Spent 3 hours sampling tapas and wines across local tapas and wine bars that we would have never found ourselves. In the process learned a lot about Spanish wines, tapas culture and an intimate walking tour of some up and coming neighborhoods that are off the usual tourists’ beaten path. Felt especially fortunate to have Oliver as our guide in a very small group of 4 people only on our tour—he’s one of the creators of the tour and has a real passion and love for Spanish culture and foods.
A fabulous night. We had great wine & food at 3 wonderful spots. The walking between venues was easy & we had great conversations with our host throughout the night. Oliver was extremely knowledgeable & informative about eating in Spain & in particular about the wine & its origins. The food was excellent & quantities generous.
One of my favorite activities on a trip is personally connecting with locals and getting a taste of their world. With our spunky guide, Arantxa, we did just that. From the first minute, we were immersed in the Madrid tapas culture with our new best friend. She took us to two different tapas bars and a wine bar, all the while sipping and learning about wines from “off the beaten track” areas of Spain. Arantxa is also a Cordon Bleu trained chef. This training certainly added to the knowledge about food and wine that she shared with us. As a chef myself (with high standards), I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!
What to Expect on Your Tour
Get an insider’s perspective on food and wine in Madrid. You’ll taste everything from traditional to modern tapas, and try some of Spain’s lesser-known wines. We’ll take you to the part of town where we go out for dinner and drinks—and to the bars and restaurants locals love. If you’re looking for a fun night out where you can sit back and enjoy the best food you’ll try in Madrid, this is it.
Start your night off in typical Madrid style: surrounded by locals in a true madrileño bar. Here you’ll sip vermouth paired with some of Spain’s most emblematic tapas and your local guide will let you in on the secret to this local aperitif tradition!
Next, you’ll be whisked away to a special wine bar that specializes in wine from La Mancha, with their signature wine coming straight from the owner’s own vineyards! Sample white wines paired with a selection of show-stopping cheese hailing from across the country.
Finally, you’ll visit one of Madrid’s leading wine bars and restaurants. No one looking for a fantastic food and wine experience in Madrid should miss this spot, packed with locals in the know each weekend. Here you’ll sample Spain’s most unique—and largely misunderstood—sherry wines, and pair them with a selection of local cured meats.
The gourmet tapas come out next, paired with two red wines from two different areas of Spain. Get ready to question everything you thought you knew about eating in Madrid—the food you try here will be what you tell your friends back home about. And it wouldn’t be dinner without dessert, so that’s next, paired with a wine all its own!
By the end of the night, you’ll have a new appreciation for Madrid’s unbeatable food and wine scene, and a few favorite new spots in Madrid’s two “it” neighborhoods.
And as with all Devour Madrid tours, you’ll receive our Devouring Madrid guide. Packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city, put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Madrid like a local!
