Food Wine and Entertainment tour of Old Madrid During our evening together, we will make three eating stops to introduce you to the five main food and wine pairings of Spain.

The first stop will be at a historical tavern where we will step back in time to taste an ancient pairing: Manchego cheese with Valdepeñas wine.

Valdepeñas wine, over the centuries, enjoyed a popularity unrivaled by other Spanish wines.

Manchego Cheese, made of sheep´s milk, is the most popular cheese in Spain.

Food Wine and Entertainment tour of Old MadridThe Second Eating stop, the first wine bar in Old Madrid. Wine Bar Twenty years ago they knew they were going to be the first to open a wine bar in the old part of the city What they didn´t know is that they were starting a trend that has completely taken this neighborhood.

Pairing: Manzanilla San Leon with different types of cured iberico ham

Manzanilla is one of the most interesting wine of Spain because of the unique aging process used in its production.

Cured Iberico ham
comes from a special breed of pig that is raised on a diet of acorns, which gives the meat a special flavor. We will also taste what our clients are referring to as the best olive oil-fried calamaris ever.

Andalucia, in southern Spain, is the home of these traditional food and wine combinations.
