The evening begins in a 19th-century tavern, sipping on the aperitif drink of the city, “vermut de grifo”. The tavern will use its ancient charcoal kitchen to cook for us the best “tortilla española” I know.

Next, I’ll whisk you off to my favorite ham bar to taste Spain’s finest delicacy: Jamón Ibérico de bellota. We will pair the ham with Victoria 2, chosen the best Spanish white wine of 2014 by the Gourmets Wine Guide. The wine has intense melon aromas and flavors that compliment the ham to perfection.

It is now time to go deeper into Old Madrid through its narrow cobblestone streets and broad squares and make our way to a restaurant housed within an 18th-century mansion!

We will sit down to taste one of the top Spanish seafood dishes, “almejas a la marinera”. I like to pair the dish with my favorite Spanish champagne, Cava Martinez Rose, winner of the Vinari bronce medal.

Now is perfect time to start with the reds. Depending on group size I will open as many premium red wines from my collection as necessary. We will start with a heavy-weight, Rioja Viña Real Gran Reserva 2001, a wine that can only be found in auctions. To go with the wines is the not-to-be-missed 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.

For dessert, we will have 25-year-old Pedro Ximénez La Cañada, chosen multiple times by the Gourmet Wine Guide as the best sweet wine in Spain. If I could have only one wine in Spain, this would be it. We will also taste a young Pedro Ximenez wine to see what a difference 25 years of aging makes. We will have two different desserts that pair in the most amazing way with these two wines.
Tour starts in the city center at 19.20 from Tuesday to Saturday, and at 12.30 pm on Sundays. Minimum age is 25 (exceptions can be made). Groups are small, maximum of 10 (except on request).
