“If we knew how to savor wine, bread, a friendship, we would know also how to savor each moment of our lives with respect and listen to the happy quiet moment that passes.” Jean Trémolières.
Life changes when you start savouring pretty much everything, and this beautiful wine shop is a good place to enjoy and learn. Behind this beautiful burgundy façade and suggestive name, Vino & Compañía (Wine & Company), there is one of our favorite stores in Madrid. Andrés González, an expert sommelier, is the soul of this project founded three years ago in one of our most beloved spots of the city: Olavide square. We were really impressed with his great selection of wines and champagne for the unforgettable clandestine dinner we enjoyed a few months ago.
There are many wine shops in Madrid but what makes Vino & Compañía unique and special is definitely the personal and exquisite attention delivered by Andrés. It’s easy to get lost among its more than 800 different wines, cavas and champagnes from all over the world, but Andrés helps you find the perfect bottle for every occasion, taste and of course, for every pocket. Besides, you can enjoy a tasting course for beginners or a thematic one, like a cheese & wine session that is already on our “to do” list. It’s a good idea for presents or a place to organise a party with friends, since they organize private events for groups.
Definitely one of our favorite stores, a place to savor the moment, to peacefully enjoy company and of course, wine. You’ll love it.
