Make sure you show-up hungry on this exclusive walking food tour led by a food and wine lover passionate about sharing Madrid’s exceptional gastronomy.

Your tastings will include a large range of tapas and wines. As per the tapas-hoping tradition in Madrid, you will be standing while eating and drinking.

Jaime

Madrid

languages :
Anglais/English, Espagnol/Spanish

Born and bred in Madrid from a family of aperitif-lovers who took him to every classic tavern in the city way before he had the age to taste wine or even reach the counter. Jaime developed a passion for wine over the years. As a journalist and food and wine lover, he always looked for different ways to bring people closer to wine, one way or another. Being a tour guide allows him today to fulfil his two main passions: wine and unleashing people into Madrid food scene! He is also a sommelier and a member of the Spanish Union of Wine Tasters. He has also collaborated in gastronomic radio programs. A little anecdote about Jaime: while photographing and writing about cultural heritage in the Department of Architecture of Madrid´s regional government, he got to know the centennial wineries in the countryside south of the city. He started up, then a wine distribution company, to bring those wines to the city taverns fighting again mainstream wines. Soon enough, he switched to bring people to drink them from their very source at the wineries or selected taverns that bet for local products. And there he is now.
