What to Expect

Get a taste of Madrid’s culinary scene and explore the local gems in the cool neighborhood of Lavapies. Enjoy delicious tapas paired with local wines and let your knowledgeable guide give you all the insights about the Spanish cuisine.

Greet your private host at a traditional local market and wander around the stalls full of fresh products, cured meat, and yummy cheese.

With a great ambiance and unique decor, the next place has a very unique atmosphere that you’ll love! Taste local wines, sample a stuffed tortilla tapa and let your private guide tell you about the origins of the wine and its characteristics.

The next establishment is one of the most popular places in the Lavapies area. You’ll taste amazing pintxo paired with a glass of wine made by a small local wine producer. Your host will recommend you the perfect wine, suitable for the ultimate gourmet experience.
