Bespoke wine tasting with our sommelier

Spanish Wine Tasting

Where some private wine tastings are confined to quiet cellars where you can practically hear the vintages maturing in the casks, this one takes on a certain rowdy energy from the buzzing surrounds of a gourmet food market in the heart of Madrid.

You’ll meet our expert sommelliers at their specialist stand, where there’s a barrel reserved just for you. If you’re new to Spanish wines they’ll provide an educational selection of reds and whites from across the country’s growing regions, including prime specimens of Rioja and sparkling Catalan cava bearing the coveted stamp of Denominación de Origen. If you’re already an aficionado, they’ll tailor samples to your areas of interest, whether they be bobal-based rosé wines from Levante or old, rare Andalusian sherries. Each is then paired with the perfect cheeses, cured meats, or olives drawn from the neighbouring world-class tapas vendors amid the colorful whirl of the city centre.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Gill B

Highly recommended

“Joanna organised a great wine tasting for our corporate group of 15 people, in Madrid on a team building weekend. Jaime, the sommelier, was entertaining, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Joanna was also on hand throughout the event to make sure everything ran smoothly. We tried some lovely wines and nibbles, and soaked up the atmosphere in a small, authentic bar. I would highly recommend Joanna and Insiders’ Madrid if you are looking for activities in Madrid!”
