Tapas and wine tasting in Madrid

Delicious food and exceptional wine are a way of life in Spain's beautiful capital. For a hen weekend with a difference, slot into its laid back pace of life and tour the city by trying one delicious taste sensation after the next. The practice of tapear (going out for tapas), best enjoyed by hopping from tapas bar to tapas bar, is the best way to experience the city's flavours. Delicious Spanish delicacies like lechona (roasted suckling pig) and cocido (a dry lamb, veal and chickpea stew), have helped build Madrid’s standing as one of the culinary capitals of Europe.

A tapas bar-crawl is the perfect way to unwind before sampling the exuberant nightlife. You'll want to take your time as getting home in daylight is the norm rather than the exception in Madrid!

When it comes to wine, Madrid's wine making region – Vinos de Madrid – is famed for its rich and fruity varieties and the city provides plenty of opportunities to try them. Tour companies such as Maximise arrange wine tasting trips or you can create your own by visiting any one of the informative bodegas (wine shops) where you can sample an overwhelming selection of wines, spirits and liqueurs.
