It was a year ago when we started this adventure of the Spanish Wine Experience. At the beginning we only had in mind a few weekly podcasts to discover all the Spanish DO’s, accompanied by a few blogs here and there on wine related topics.
Well, after that time, the result has been much more positive than we had expected. We have remained strictly on schedule in our podcast publication every Thursday of the year. To date, we have published 53 episodes in which we have travelled throughout most of Spain, but we are far from coming to an end. We still have a long way to go: wines of the region, wines of the land, not to mention those areas where there are excellent red and white wines, but of which we have only talked about one variety. So don’t worry, there’s a lot of podcasts left.
We have visited wineries, events, fairs, we’ve invited friends to join us on our podcasts and together with them we have drunk and laughed like never before.
We have also celebrated special times of the year that deserved particular attention, such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween or the New Year.
We have created a community of friends around the world who support us on a weekly basis with their questions and suggestions. Nothing can make us prouder.
And after this first year we only want to continue growing, so we are taking advantage of this first anniversary to announce that now you can also enjoy our enological experience live and in our company through the Airbnb Experiences.
The proposal we want to make is to visit two typical taverns in the centre of Madrid, in possibly the most popular traditional neighbourhood: La Latina. There we will taste 4 different wines: a sparkling wine, an unusual white wine and two totally unexpected red wines. We don’t want to bore you with the wines that you can find in supermarkets around the world. And of course, each wine will be accompanied by a tapa, where we will test the pairing ability of our chefs.
We will bring our podcast microphone to our experiences and they will become part of it. We would love to hear what you think about Spanish wines and above all, to participate with your doubts, questions and thoughts. From the very beginning our podcast has created a virtual community that knows no boundaries, a group of friends who unite us in love of one thing: wine.
We would love to have you on your next trip to Madrid. If you are encouraged to visit the capital of Spain, visit the Spanish Wine Experience site on Airbnb, look for the day and book your place.
Another of our adventures during this second year of production is to launch the “Spanish Wine Experience” book, where we will gather the necessary information to turn it into the most practical, complete and irreverent guide on Spanish wine in the English language. Stay tuned for future news on this exciting project.
And for the rest, we only have to thank you for your company, we want to continue counting on you week after week, and please do not hesitate to visit us if you stop by Madrid: we will toast to that.
All the best,
Luke & Roque
