This week I’m talking all about el vino, Spanish wine. To help me explore the world of Spanish wine I’ve enlisted the help of wine lovers, wine experts Luke Darracott and Roque Madrid.

In the episode I head along to their wine shop called Madrid & Darracott where we talk about the history of Spanish wine, the various regions and D.Os, styles and general wine appreciation.

We talk a little about what to try, how to order and where to go if you want to visit wineries in Spain.

Luke and Roque also talk about their background in wine and how they came to open their own shop selling their favorite Spanish wines.

We also crack open a bottle and do a little tasting too, glug, glug!

WHAT IS WHEN IN SPAIN?

The When in Spain show is a weekly podcast show, recorded in Madrid (and other parts of Spain) where l talk about my ‘warts and all’ observations and insights on life and culture on the Iberian peninsular.

I cast an eye on everyday life, people, places, politics, culture and history and attempt to give an honest opinion from a Brit who has a love-frustration relationship with Spain. I shall attempt to dispel or indeed confirm Spanish stereotypes through my ramblings and see if I can delve into the Spanish psyche.
