1. Reserva y Cata

This trendy wine shop in the heart of the hip Chueca neighborhood is home to some of the most unique wine tastings in Madrid! Reserva y Cata features wines from top-name producers as well as smaller, family-run bodegas, so you’ll get a taste of everything.

While most tastings are done in Spanish here, the friendly, English-speaking staff is more than happy to arrange tastings in English upon request. The team is truly passionate about wine, and it shows in their commitment to helping guests discover more about this fascinating drink.

Our monthly, English-language wine tastings in Madrid each have unique themes and plenty of Spanish snacks to go around. The event will set you back just 20 euros and teach you all you need to know about wine in a relaxed, unpretentious setting.

3. Vino y Cata

A bit off the beaten path in the nearly tourist-free Arganzuela neighborhood, Vino y Cata is a bright, beautiful shop specializing in Spanish wines. This relatively new space has become a popular spot to get together with friends and enjoy a glass of wine in good company.

The store offers regular tastings several times a month, all of which are announced on their website and Facebook page. Every so often they also feature free mini tastings of one or two unique wines for anyone who stops by the shop! It’s also possible to arrange private group tastings for reasonable prices.

    Good afternoon. My name is John McVey. I am interested in a private winetasting in English for two of us. The tasting in the cave sounds good or the tasting of white and rose wines is also peeling. We are looking at doing this on 15 October. Are you available? Or what do you recommend? Thank you so much I look forward to hearing from you.
