Tour Details

Join our Certified Sommelier for a fun, informative, and playful Wine and tapas tour in Madrid for a Small Group where your senses take center stage because you will BLIND taste the wines!

‘This is not your average Wine and Tapas tour. It’s like having your own private sommelier guiding through Madrid’s best spots while learning about Spanish Wines. It’s a wonderful experience.’ 

Begin your journey in the vibrant Chueca neighborhood, where you will first visit a historic tavern to taste traditional vermouth. As you arrive at the meeting point, you are warmly greeted by our knowledgeable Sommelier guide, a passionate expert in the local culture and history.

Discover all the stops in our Small Group Wine and tapas tour in Madrid with Blind Tasting:

First, our Sommelier will begin by setting the stage with fascinating historical anecdotes about Chueca, an iconic area in Madrid, known for its rich cultural heritage and lively atmosphere. After immersing you in the neighborhood’s history, she invites you to follow her to a historic tavern nearby. 

There, you will not only taste the authentic flavor of traditional vermouth, but also learn about the intricacies of vermouth itself, its rich history, and the cherished tradition of drinking vermouth in Madrid. This experience promises to deepen your appreciation of both the neighborhood and this beloved local beverage.

The second stop of our tour takes you to a bustling, vibrant food market in the heart of Chueca, a true gem of Madrid’s culinary scene. As you step inside, our Sommelier guide introduces you to the market’s rich history, detailing its evolution from a traditional market to a modern gastronomic haven. The air is filled with enticing aromas, and the colorful displays of fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and other delights captivate your senses. 

Here, our unique Blind Spanish Tasting experience begins. You are presented with two fantastic Spanish white wines, and the challenge is set: using only your senses and the descriptions your Sommelier guide will give, you must identify which wine is which. This interactive and educational activity not only sharpens your tasting skills but also deepens your appreciation for Spanish wines. The market, with its lively energy and delicious offerings, provides the perfect backdrop for this engaging and delightful experience.

Our third stop is a fabulous and quintessential Spanish wine bar, a cozy yet vibrant spot that exudes charm and authenticity. As you settle into this inviting setting, our Spanish Wines Blind Tasting experience continues, this time featuring two high-quality Spanish red wines. Paired with these exquisite wines, you will savor an array of delightful tapas, including an amazing Spanish cheese board and the finest Spanish chorizo.

During this stop, our Sommelier guide will delve into the fascinating world of Spanish red grape varieties, exploring the unique characteristics and flavor profiles that set them apart. You will learn about the diverse wine regions of Spain, each with its own distinct terroir and winemaking traditions, as well as the passionate winemakers behind these exceptional wines. Throughout this journey, you will discover specificities and differences of Spanish wine regions, grape varieties and winemakers.

You’ll also learn to read Spanish wine labels and understand the tradition of tapas, enhancing your ability to pair wine and food, leaving you with lasting memories.

A wine and tapas tour in Madrid with blind tasting? Of course it’ll be a blast! We went a small group of friends and the competition to guess the wines was really fun ‘

What our customers say about us!

  • HALF DAY OF JOY
    With a spare day in Madrid my wife and I found Jimena and her company for the perfect winery tour in Spain. I wanted a small winery and unique tour and that is exactly what I got. Her knowledge was vast and the small organic winery we visited was amazing. The perfect personalized small winery tour. I would highly recommend anyone in the Madrid area looking for a winery experience, look up Colorful Wines!

  • PERFECT OUTING. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
    Jimena put together a great half-day tour for me and my family. Along with her team, Jimena arranged for everything (including transport, tour, tasting, and light meal) so that we didn’t have to worry about anything other than enjoying our time. She was also happy to help us with tips and advice when purchasing wine from the cellar to take with us. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about wines, speaks (at least?) English, Spanish and French fluently and makes every effort to make the experience fun and memorable. Highly recommended!

  • GREAT FOR SPANISH SPEAKING PEOPLE AS WELL!
    Jimena did an amazing job! We were so happy we went for half day tour to a family owned winery with her. She gave us a lot of great wine tips, we came back home with 3 cases of great wine! 3 main things that I’d love to mention:
    1. she has tours on Sundays
    2. she perfectly speaks English (and as far as I know French as well)
    3. she had such a personalized service, we were very happy!
    You will have great time and detailed information about wine (not Spanish only).

  • UNIQUE, GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC!
    From hotel pick-up to drop-off, Jimena and team were just fantastic! She was thoughtful, accommodating and speaks great English! We really enjoyed the entire experience–the wine tour and tasting was great. We also had fun with a quaint and private stroll through Navalcarnero, including a wonderfully delicious and authentic lunch! Not a typical “tour” by any means–so very unique and genuine–we loved it! Well worth the cost.

  • AMAZING WINE TOUR!
    We enjoyed an amazing, informative wine tour with Jimena (the owner) as our guide. She was knowledgeable and a lot of fun for my husband, two adult and two teenage children to have as our guide. We were picked up directly at our hotel which was convenient.
    Our booking was last minute so it was fantastic that we were able to go on this day trip. The winery we visited was a 5th generation family. So glad we were able to fit this into our trip. So Memorable! Truly a must do!

  • GREAT TOUR OF MADRID WINERY
    Jimena set up a spectacular wine tour for my girlfriend and I at a small, 5-generation winery outside of Madrid. We saw everything that goes into winemaking, from touring the vineyard and tasting grapes to the bodega where the wine is fermented in huge clay tanks and finally to the ancient cellar where it sits in bottles. We finished our tour with a tasting. Jimena did a great job translating and answering all of our questions. Thanks Jimena!

  • PERSONALIZED AND REWARDING! A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!
    Combining colorful wines, family traditions, and exceptionally educated and caring hosts, Colorful Wines has created a once in a lifetime tour experience. My wife and I loved the complete personalized atmosphere. From the 5th generation family owned and operated vineyard, to the history of the region, we were continuously impressed and inspired. Jimena and Colorful Wines’ knowledge of oenology was outstanding.

  • AMAZING WINE TOUR!!!
    My boyfriend and I did this tour together and we absolutely loved it! Jimena,the guide and owner of the company, made this tour personal and intimate. It was just the two of us and it was an up close and personal experience. We were able to see the vineyard, a historic cellar and taste the wines guided by a fifth generation wine maker. This experience is not something a large tour company with a lot of people would have been able to do. We highly recommend this tour. You will feel VIP!!

  • FUN TOUR!
    My 3 nieces and I recently enjoyed the Half Day Wine Tour with Jimena and Colorful Wines. It was a perfect day trip from Madrid and we really enjoyed our time with the owner of a local generational winery. Jimena was knowledgeable and a great tour guide/translator for our time together. I would highly recommend Colorful Wines and Jimena for a future wine tour.

  • AMAZING TOUR WITH COLORFUL WINES!!!
    Our hotel front desk personnel at The Mint recommended Colorful Wines and we are so grateful they did. My husband and I had a great time touring the Jose Diaz E Hijos vineyards, winery and tasting the fabulous wines. Our half day excursion was a great personalized tour with Jimena and her driver. We learned a lot of the area and the wines. JImena is so personable, knowledgeable and fun. I’ve been on a few wines tours in Napa and this tour was so much more than others.

  • A WONDERFUL PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE
    We decided at the last minute in Madrid to book a wine tour and Jimena could not have been more accommodating. She arranged on one day’s notice to take us to a small family owned Organic winery about 35 minutes outside of Madrid. We were promptly picked up at our hotel for the scenic ride to the vineyard during which Jimena explained to us the varieties of wines in Spain. Upon our arrival at the vineyard we were greeted by the owner’s daughter…

  • We did the local Madrid wine tour: “Organic Bodega near Madrid & Cervantes’ Birthplace”
    Jimena was a fantastic guide, the winery is a very special place with Carlos the owner and his wife being the perfect hosts. Carlos with the history of the beginnings of their winery and a walk through the vineyard, finishing with wine tasting and parings. Lunch was fantastic! Tour of the town of Alcalá de Henares is very historic and small and a perfect ending…

  • I recently went with some friends to a beautiful winery near Madrid, and we experienced different wines (although my favourite ones are Rioja wines, I loved the wines from Madrid DO we tasted) and also gastronomic specialties. We absolutely loved it, it was a great experience! Jimena was a wonderful guide who showed us the area, described everything in depth and detailed all the wine characteristics. We tasted fabulous wines and the winery was really nice. Would love to repeat the experience…

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE
    We visited 3 vineyards in Madrid. Passion and Knowledge for wines are the main words that come to mind when I remember Jimena; she was an excellent guide to my family and friends. I recommend her 100% to do something different and unique in Madrid.
