Madrid Old Town Gourmet Tapas and Wine Tasting Walking Tour

The evening begins in a 19th-century tavern sipping on the aperitif of the city, “vermut de grifo”, which we will pair with olives and a traditional Madrid tapa: “Soldaditos de Pavía“. Next, I’ll whisk you off to my favorite ham bar to taste Spain’s finest food: “Jamón Ibérico de bellota“, which we will pair with Victoria 2, best Spanish white wine (Gourmets Wine Guide). The wine has intense melon aromas and flavors that compliment the ham to perfection. We will also taste other iberico cold cuts like chorizo, lomo and salchicon.Next comes the famous Spanish omelette. A dish hard to pair due to one ingredient: onion, which is a well-known wine killer. Luckily, Manzanilla, that is, the most original Spanish wine, pairs onion to perfection. We will taste my favorite: Manzanilla Solear Pasada en Rama (International Wine Challenge 2013: Gold Medal). It is now time to go deeper into Old Madrid through its narrow cobblestone streets and make our way to a restaurant housed inside an 18th-century mansion!We will sit down to taste Presa Iberica, Spain’s favorite cut of Ibérico pork, which accounts for a mere five pounds of the pig’s weight, hence the price of forty dollars a pound. Now is perfect time to begin with the reds. We will start with the best wine in Spain (Wine Spectator), Rioja Viña Ardanza. Depending on group size I will open more premium red wines from the most exciting Spanish wine regions: Rioja, Priorato, Ribera del Duero and Toro. To round off the night we will taste two unforgettable dessert wines:• 25-year-old PX La Cañada, chosen many times the best sweet Spanish wine (Gourmets Guide). The wine will perform a miracle by turning vanilla ice cream into rum & raisins ice cream with a caramel note and a toffee finish.• Alvear PX de Añada, one of the very few Spanish wines to achieve the highest honor in the world of wine: Robert Parker 100 points.What we will have this wine with is so surprising that I ‘d rather keep it secret.

Tapas Like A Local

Start your night off in true Madrid style—surrounded by locals as you sip vermouth and nibble on tapas. Your expert guide will let you in on the secret to this local aperitif tradition as you discover what going for tapas really means here in Spain. Next, head across one of Madrid’s main squares to a popular local tapas bar for a draft beer and delicious bites. You’ll learn the owner’s story and fall in love with the chef’s amazing food. At the third tapas bar, you’ll taste one of Madrid’s signature tapas, gambas al ajillo—a dish this family-run bar claims to have invented! They’ve been in business since 1906, so we’ll take their word for it! You’ll also be able to order a glass of wine made from the same family’s vineyard in the Toro region. Finally, you’ll squeeze into one of Madrid’s last remaining traditional tapas institutions– a no-frills place where locals pack in for favorite dishes (including the Madrid specialty– pig ear!). Adventurous or not, there’s something delicious for everyone at this spot. By the end of the night, you’ll know exactly what it means to do tapas like a local, and why tapas culture can’t exist outside of Spain (so you’ll have to come back!).
