• Reviews: Viator☑️ ¦ Tripadvisor☑️
Next, I’ll whisk you off to my favorite ham bar to taste Spain’s finest food: “Jamón Ibérico de bellota” paired with Victoria nº2 – best Spanish white wine (Gourmets Wine Guide). The wine has intense melon aromas🍈 that compliment the ham to perfection. We will also taste other iberico cold cuts like chorizo, lomo and salchicon.
Next comes the famous Spanish omelette. A dish hard to pair due to one ingredient: onion, a well-known wine killer. Luckily, Manzanilla, the most original Spanish wine, pairs onion to perfection. We will taste my favorite: Manzanilla Solear Pasada en Rama – International Wine Challenge 2013 Gold Medal.
It is now time to go deeper into Old Madrid through its narrow cobblestone streets and make our way to a restaurant housed inside an 18th-century mansion🏛!
We will sit down to devour 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 50💰 a pound.
Now is perfect time to begin with the reds🍷. We will start with Rioja Viña Ardanza 2009 – best Spanish wine (Wine Spectator). Depending on group size I will open more of my favorite Spanish reds: Alto Moncayo, Mauro, Clio, Somni, etc.
To round off the night we will taste two unforgettable dessert wines:
PX La Cañada – best sweet Spanish wine (Gourmets Guide). The wine will perform a miracle by turning vanilla ice cream into rum & raisins ice cream with a caramel note and a toffee finish.
Alvear PX de Añada – Robert Parker 100 points. What we will have this wine with is so surprising that I ‘d rather keep it secret.
The cost of 65 euros covers all tapas & wine as well as access to a Google map of my favorite bars and attractions.
