Spanish wine needs little introduction; the third largest producer of wine in the world, Spain’s reputation follows only that of France and Italy. And of course as everyone knows, wine-producing countries tend to keep the best stuff for themselves so we’ve put together a list of four of our favourite wine bars where you can sample the best of Spain’s wine.
Madrid is a fantastic city for shopping and it seems the Spanish have a knack for creating an exciting consumer experience. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite four but you’ll discover lots more as you walk around the different barrios of this vibrant metropolis.
Spain is no stranger to gourmand accolades. El Bulli, in Roses near Catalonia, was, until its closure in 2011, frequently named the best restaurant in the world. Accordingly, Spanish chefs have a certain standard to live up to and even surpass if they want to make a name for themselves. There’s nothing like a bit of competition to get the creative juices flowing, so we’ve chosen our four favorite Michelin restaurants in Madrid that we feel represent the best of new Spanish cooking.
