  • It was engaging and a blast. The wine tasting guide was well informed, provided lots of history about wine in Spain generally as well as a generous amount of details for each and every wine tried. The restaurant we tasted wine at was also clean and accommodating and the snacks were delicious. Definitely worth your time and a great introduction to Spanish wines.

  • This was a must for me while in Madrid. The instructor was excellent — knowledgeable about the wines and very personable. I would highly recommend this event for anyone wanting to learn the basics about Spanish wines while learning more about the culture of Madrid!

  • What a great d'aventure! We went to différent bars, tasted so many différent type of tapas and wine. Great atmosphere. I recommand deifnitively!

  • Great experience and value! I would highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys wine and wants to learn more. Our sommelier very friendly and knowledgeable and he went out of his way to help us out. We had six fantastic wines. He explained a lot of details about the regions.

  • This was one of the best experiences we had in Madrid. It was a pleasure to spend the time with someone who was so knowledgable about his subject. Jamie is a true expert and this was above what one would normally expect at a wine tasting. Bought 2 of his recommended wines to bring home. He was also helpful in giving us a recommendation for eating lunch afterwards at a restaurant very close by.

  • We really enjoyed our experience with Jaime and Gourmet Madrid. We met Jaime at a nearby restaurant, La Notaria and - as had been clearly explained in the lead-up email communications from the Gourmet Madrid team - we headed to the Gourmet Madrid offices for the tasting. Jaime really helped us understand the different regions of Spain, the wine quality ladder VP, DOC, DO, VT and Vino de Mesa, where certain wine types/grape varietals come from domestically and how those elements all connect with the nose, taste and finish of the wines we tried. This is especially interesting given the wide-ranging level of temperature and precipitation within the Spanish wine-making regions. We found setting intimate as our tasting had only one other couple.

    Jaime provided very generous pours and great other recommendations locally. He was more than generous with his time as well, which we were so appreciative of as well as an additional reduced rate offer for two other tours that were available during our visit as well. Thanks for the wonderful tasting, Jaime and Gourmet Madrid!

  • There was only 3 people including myself and my partner for the wine tasting so it was a really personal experience. We ended up tasting more wines than expected and got a variety of meats and cheeses to try along the way. The host was very informative and knowledgeable about spanish wines. I have done wine tasting in many countries and this was definitely the least formal for me but also the most interactive. I would highly recommend, great value for money.

  • knowlegdable semillion

  • I definitively recommend that tasting. Jamie has a wide knowledge about Spanish wines and it was great to discover what Spain proposes as wines!

  • Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Madrid. Jamie was extremely knowledge when elaborating on the history of the various wines. At the end of the tasting you have the opportunity to purchase a variety of the wines which are reasonably priced. A great way to spend your time and money.
