Wine is undoubtedly a huge part of Spanish culture. Although most people think of wines produced in the north of Spain, Andalusia is quickly becoming a hub of unique, delicious wines for you to enjoy.
While perhaps best known for delicious sherries, the south of Spain also has some beautiful wines from wineries that are breaking the mould when it comes to vino production. And with cosy wine bars dotted throughout the city, it’s only right that there is also a selection of great wine tastings to participate in while you’re in the city. So pull up a chair and learn from the experts at our favorite wine tastings in Seville!
Flor de Sal Vinos
In business since 2010, Flor de Sal Vinos hosts fascinating wine tastings almost daily for you to enjoy. And with a selection of the 80+ wines sold on site, what’s there not to love? Expert locals will talk you through a tasting of 4 to 6 different wines. Expect to try Spanish classics, Andalusian specialties and a selection of local bites. You’ll leave armed with new knowledge on the intricacies of Spanish wine, along with how to best pair your favorite drink.
Group tasting inquiries can be made via the website or by email ([email protected]), and are available in Spanish, English & German. Or, to really expand your knowledge of Spanish wine, you can even sign up to specialized wine courses. They are between 6-16 hours long and help you to fully understand each unique type of Spanish wine and the differences between them.

Our Wine Tasting in a Gourmet Shop

We’ll head to one of our favorite gourmet wine shops in the city and taste six different wines. You’ll experience the whole spectrum of Spanish wine and learn how to drink wine like a true local. From boisterous red to local white, bone dry sherry to sweet vermouth – you’ll try them all. Of course, each sip will be paired with an appropriate nibble and you’ll enjoy the company of one of our dedicated wine experts. You’ll also get a whole host of recommendations for the remainder of your time in the city, so you can use your new found skills to take on the complex tapas and wine scene of Seville.
If you’re looking for an informal place to try some local wines before you buy, head to Flores Gourmet. The shop brings to life the old abacería tradition where locals would swing by and taste some of the finest produce available before making their purchase. With a huge selection of wines from all over Spain, you’re bound to find something you’ll absolutely love.
Although official tastings can be organized through the website, you can also just pop into the shop unannounced.
