    Recommended excellent wine that fit our tastes
    On the evening of the day we arrived in Madrid we were searching for a bottle of chilled white wine to enjoy with our dinner. Three places had no chilled wine; finally we found Madrid & Darracott. The gentleman who assisted us listened carefully to my wife's description of what we wanted, repeated back all the criteria, and recommended a chilled bottle that turned out to be perfect. He loves wine, is highly knowledgeable about wine, and is customer-focussed. Great experience.

    Sherry Tasting
    My husband and I booked the sherry tasting experience. We were the only 2 people, so it ended up being a private tasting with Kevin. How sherry gets made is fascinating. Kevin is very knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. We mentioned that we ran out of time to also book the Vermouth tasting. What did he do? He opened up a few bottles for us to try! Even if you can't make one of their scheduled tastings, contact them because they are very accommodating. I strongly recommend a visit to Madrid & Darracott whether you book a tasting or not!

    Gem in Madrid
    An absolutely brilliant place. We enjoyed the wine and warmth of hospitality. We've booked an evening visit for one of our two nights in Madrid. I've definitely learned more about my own experience of wine in just a couple of hours. Highly recommend.

We went to Madrid & Darracott simply to pick out a couple of bottles of wine for dinner. We know very little about wine and went in there blind.

The proprietor stepped us through, describing each bottle and the kind of flavor we could expect... everything from 7 euros to 80 euros. We came away with a couple of bottles in our price range that were spot on.

I would definitely go back to this place for my next bottle.

Went here one evening with a number of friends for a Spanish wine tasting. We choose a sparkling to start with followed by two whites and then two reds. Luke looked after us royally, keeping us well entertained with his in depth knowledge of the large variety of Spanish wines, we had heard of Rioja but not familiar with all the other varietals; helpfully aided by a large map of the country. Not to forget the various small tapas bits, olives, cheese, jamon , etc that kept on appearing and kept any hunger from the door.
Would thoroughly recommend.

In his next life Luke is coming back as a comedian. Actually, he already is one. We had so much fun at the wine tasting at his shop. We tried several Spanish wines and as we tasted, Luke explained the region they came from, even showing us on the map. He talked about all the grape varieties and gave us much more of an understanding of the wines. We purchased a couple as well. I have taken several professional wine classes but still got a lot out of this tasting. Plus, it was just so much fun!

Fantastic wine selection and wine tasting at this charming store near the Plaza Mayor. My husband and I went in one day to pick up some bottles of wine for our stay in Madrid and Luke made some excellent recommendations. He also let us know about their wine tastings so we gladly returned the next day for a fun, educational and delicious wine tasting with Roque and a very nice couple from Scotland. The selected wines were diverse, affordable and fantastic on the palate. Overall, it’s a very welcoming, accessible store with a fantastic range of terrific wine and wonderful hosts. You must visit M&D on your next trip to Madrid!

My partner and I did a tasting today with Luke. We had a fantastic time, Luke is friendly and very passionate about wine. We learnt some great tips for tastings and he provided us with heaps of recommendations. The shop is lovely with a range of wines as affordable prices. This is a great place to learn more about Spanish wines and to buy.

After stalking these guys on social media since they opened, we had our first visit this weekend and it was awesome! We enjoyed a fantastic tasting in this gorgeous shop with two really passionate and entertaining hosts! Luke and Roque make wine tasting that little more special, so much knowledge and passion - their enthusiasm is infectious! We will definitely be back next time we are in Madrid for more delicious wine!! Well done guys, just gutted you’re not based in the Uk!!!

Luke Darracotte and Roque Madrid are two successful young writers and filmmakers and foodies who have just opened this fun, hip, useful wine shop on Duque de Rivas just below the Plaza Mayor chaos and just above the Cava Baja scene. In my view, it's a don't miss: they have great taste in and knowledge about high-quality affordable Spanish wine and even offer tastings (more like mini-seminars) each day at 12:30. A highlight of my two-month retirement-celebration trip to Madrid.
