On this tour, I will be focusing on some of the most delicious cheeses of Basque Country and, specifically, how to pair them with local wines or artisanal beers.

I will answer any questions you may have about the city’s beautiful architecture and the fascinating history behind it. We will then arrive to a locally beloved restaurant and embark on a tasting of gooey, nutty local cheeses with some local Spanish wines and artisanal beers. The tour serves as the perfect aperitif before dinner in Bilbao.
