Spanish tasting initiation course for wine lovers. Available in English and Spanish.
Maybe you have never done an initiation course to the tasting but surely you have said: I do not understand wines, I only know if I like wine or not ... Yes? Well, congratulations! You're already halfway through way of understanding wines.
Because understanding wines does not mean knowing the name of each oenologist from the more than 4,000 wineries in Spain. Understanding wine is knowing what you like, knowing how to define why you like it and what factors make you like it.
The initiation courses to the wine tasting of Gourmet Madrid have been since 2008 a benchmark in the leisure of wine in Madrid. Our sommeliers select very different wines from different Denominations of origin so that the Tasting is an experience where you can contrast, learn and have fun.
