The Spanish wine tradition dates back to the 1st century A.D. Today, with more than 400 grape varieties, Spain is one of the top wine producers in the world. However, most people are only familiar with two types of Spanish wines: Rioja and Cava. The truth is, Rioja does not have the best wines in Spain- they are just better at marketing them internationally because the Denominación de Origen (DOC is the Spanish equivalent of the French AOC) was founded by bankers.
Our Spanish Wine Tasting takes place in a delightful local wine bar in the centre of Madrid. Our sommelier takes you through both the classics and the lesser known, emerging stars of Spanish wine. You will learn about the DOC system and what it takes to earn the designation. You will learn about different wine making regions in Spain and discover which are considered the best. This is all whilst enjoying a tasting perfectly tailored to your preferences.
Whether you are new to wine or already an expert, we customize the tasting to your preferences.
