Begin your tour in Madrid's picturesque Plaza Mayor, and sample fine Spanish wine alongside traditional cold cut meats and cheeses. Then head to the wine tavern district of La Latina, stopping at three of Madrid's top family-run taverns for some of the city's tastiest wines and tapas.
This district's speciality tapas are called pinchos, or tostas, tapas ingredients piled high on a slice of crunchy bread. Choose your favorite from the novelty tapas on display at the bar.
Long a central part of the Mediterranean diet, wine dates back more than 8,000 years, though Spanish wine has just recently begun receiving the international recognition it deserves. Spain's weather provides ideal growing conditions for top quality grapes. In fact, many fine French and Italian wine producers import Spanish grapes, given their high quality. Indulge in some of the most highly acclaimed Spanish Rioja, Ribera del Duero, and white R'as Baixas wines before returning to your departure point.
