Tasting and Tapas

Tasting & Tapas, with Raúl Orantes

Join us and our favorite wine guide, sommelier and gastronome, the charismatic Raúl Orantes !

Get ready for wine, tapas, knowledge, tastings and fun.

From his home in Madrid, Raúl shows us how to make a different Spanish tapa to pair with the wine we are going to taste!

We look into a different Spanish wine region each week – its geography and landscape, its history, how it’s evolved. Most importantly, we taste the wine together and share our experience of it!

Whether this is your aperitif before lunch in California or pre-dinner drinks in London, join us for these entertaining and insightful sessions.

You buy the wine & ingredients, we meet you online for the tasting!

*** We also set this up for private groups!

“The Insider’s Travel virtual Spanish wine tastings & tapas are the highlight of my week… Jo & Raul guide you through the wine and tapas for a great evening of learning, tasting, quirky insights and laughter… it’s the next best thing to being on holiday. The only downside is I’m now in love with Priorat…”

“If you are struggling to think of how to entertain friends or clients, I highly recommend this! We asked Joanna to put together a private version of Spanish Saturday, Tasting and Tapas for our group online party. – it really does make you feel you are being transported to Spain. I like the food element and learning about wine. Rául is very engaging and I love the hosted style and repartee between him and Joanna. A great evening in!”
