Discovering Spanish Wine

Join Stephen for a tasting of wines of Spain’s many wine regions from Rioja and Ribera del Duero to the smaller less known denominations of origin, in the some of our favorite wine bars hidden in Old Madrid.

Learn about the wine

Learn about what the labels on the bottles have to say and which wines to choose from a menu, while we enjoy delicious tapas of cured hams, creamy and crumbly Spanish cheeses, pates, empanadas and homemade quiche.

Our Tour

The Wellington Society offers a superb chance for wine aficionados (and those who are just out for a delightful time) to learn about Spanish wines. We will also share our knowledge of those wines we highly recommended to take back home from the rows upon rows neatly stacked in these taverns we visit. You will get expert advice from Stephen’s knowledge of the many wine regions, helpful hints on excellent wine years and which wineries to look out for. This is a unique tour through Old Madrid.
