Along with food, Spain has a vibrant wine culture and wine is an important accompaniment to most meals. One of the best ways to understand and appreciate wine in Spain is to experience a wine tasting. Madrid Uncorked is one of the most popular tasting companies and favoured by tourists from around the world. Their tastings are in English so it’s easy to follow and pick up information, and each tasting has its own unique theme.
Not only can you sample some of the best wine from around the country; you can also enjoy meeting locals and tourists in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Many wine stores in Madrid also offer wine tasting sessions every fortnight or every month – some good ones include Vino y Cata and Reserve y Cata. Most wine tastings are also accompanied with delicious tapas and snacks, so you can get a sense of the right food pairings as well.
