My name is Andrés Jarabo and besides wine tasting bars🍷 I run the first walking tour specialized in food & wine pairings.
Vinoteca Garcia de la Navarra
Right next to the city hall and in the most beautiful part of Madrid you will find my favorite wine bar in the city. The wines available “by the glass” are written down on a blackboard. If you want to order a whole bottle they have a massive collection. Tip: It is not uncommon for them to open a special bottle in the evening to serve by the glass and not write it down on the blackboard, ask for it. Outstanding tapas with each glass of wine. Two brothers run this bar, Luis (in charge of the wine) and Pedro (in charge of the kitchen). In the video you can see Luis at the Spanish Wine Tasting Association:
Right in the city center, cozy and sophisticaded to the point that some of the of the waiters are French sommeliers!
It has an impressive selection of wines by the glass including the largest collection of Sherry in the city. Outstanding cusine and atmosphere. Tip: There is a cocktail bar downstairs.
Cozy bar, I love to go in the winter time, located in the most famous food and wine street in Madrid: La Cava Alta. At the back of the bar there is a blackboard with all the available wines by the glass. Tip: Tempranillo is in the heart of medioval Madrid. Close by you have beauties like the decoration of the “Capilla del Obispo”, La Basílica de San Miguel or the San Isidro Museum.
