I signed up for the wine tasting on a whim on my first day in Madrid and couldn't have made a better decision. All props to Luke for making it fun and informative (and for not skimping on the wine. Good stuff!). If you're wondering whether it's worth taking an hour out of your sightseeing schedule, the answer is most definitely YES.

That was fun! Luke is a very energetic storyteller and the wines he chose for us tasted so good that I bought two bottles right after the tasting. We were a really nice group, too, and it was a bit sad that the event lasted for only 1 hour. I could have definitely stayed longer and continued drinking ;) Jokes aside, that was a really great experience. If you want to learn something about Spanish wine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere this ones for you.

This is one of the must-do experiences if you’re looking for some in this app. The hosts were super comprehensive despite us being a bit late, and the wine tasting itself is really really good. The host made us feel right at home, very talkative and always cracking a joke or two, it really makes you more immerse in the experience. All in all, it’s super fun. Also wine is always good :)

This was a wonderful wine tasting experience. Roque leads a thoughtful session and includes history, humor, and wine tasting tips for restaurants. He also made two delicious restaurant suggestions (where we had more good wines!) They weren't trying to sell us or push their products, which was so refreshing! They simply want to share their passion for wine.

Wonderful experience! I learned a lot, laughed ALOT, and drank a lot. Roque made the experience both fun and interesting. I walked away with a new appreciation for Spanish wines and the confidence to order and taste -test wines in restaurants without looking like an idiot. Thank you for such a lovely experience!

Roque gave a very good overview of Spanish wine regions and wines and taught us easy ways to detect the acidity, taste etc of different wines. The wines we tasted were excellent and we learned a lot from this experience.
