Description

This gourmet tour of Bilbao, gives you the opportunity to emerge in the Basques cuisine. 
You will learn all about pintxos, how to eat them, when, how many per bar, how to make them at home and of course, what to drink them with. Then we will enjoy a different wine tasting in one of the places where we, Basques socialize with families and friends - our great, lively, pintxos bars, in the historical Old Town of Bilbao.
Pintxos are the Basque tapas, but quite a different concept; they are gourmet miniature cuisine and an important part of Basque culture. We will visit 5 pintxos bars, including a different pintxo, a drink at each one, and explanations from a local on how to eat them, their history, ellaboration techniques and wine tasting. We will also make a historical tour of the Old Town, based on an off the beaten path route that will show you the most interesting places in this beautiful, pedestrian area. 
For any food intolerancies, please let me know in advance. Non-alcoholic drinks are also available.

Organized by

Mikel

Basque-born and passionate about travel & food, I love showing our beautiful country and wine culture to my guests. It isn't just wine tasting...it's also about explaining how we make it, what places are the most interesting to visit (in an off-the-beaten-path philosophy) and where to find that hidden gem that will be the highlight of your visit. College educated (degree in English literature, as well as in Marketing), I've been in the tourist sector for over 10 years and I do my best to make my guests feel at home.
