Wine is undoubtedly a huge part of Spanish culture. Although most people think of wines produced in the north of Spain, Andalusia is quickly becoming a hub of unique, delicious wines for you to enjoy.
While perhaps best known for delicious sherries, the south of Spain also has some beautiful wines from wineries that are breaking the mould when it comes to vino production. And with cosy wine bars dotted throughout the city, it’s only right that there is also a selection of great wine tastings to participate in while you’re in Seville. So pull up a chair and learn from the experts at our favorite wine tastings in Seville!
