Learn how to taste, order and identify different styles of wine on a fun and informative wine tasting experience of Spanish wines in Madrid. We want to take you on a journey through a selection of regional wines in two of our favourite bars and show you what our country has to offer!
What to Expect
Join the kind of class you weren’t offered at school and get advice on how to identify, select, and taste wine. Held in two elegant locations in Madrid’s oldest neighbourhood, you will go on a journey through the wine regions of Spain and get a much better understanding and knowledge about wine in general.
The neighbourhood is just a few minutes walk from Plaza Mayor. You will taste different styles of wines, from different regions of Spain. Discover the difference between the wine produced in Rioja and Ribera del Duero, or why you should be drinking Spanish rosés.
With a unique and refreshing approach, your wine expert will take you through a variety of themes to build up your wine knowledge. He will teach you how Cava is made and how to taste wines properly. He will take you through the main wine regions of Spain, the grapes they grow, and the styles of wine they make. He will also teach you how to read a Spanish label, what to drink when, and clarify concepts like terroir and denominación de origen.
You will learn a lot, and taste a lot of good Spanish wine! And of course, there’ll be some tapas to nibble on. All the wines tried will be available for purchase as well as many other varietals too. Just ask your expert!
