When I first arrived in Madrid a year ago, I did as any good wine geek should and set off in search of my personal wine store. You know how it goes, as wine geeks we browse all the stores we can find, buy wine from all corners of town, and even peruse the ever growing online wine retail business; but we still have our store! The one that always is willing to go out of their way to help you find a special wine, or that helps you arrange a tasting. I used to be that shop. When I lived in the states my shop was the place where every customer had a name and my staff and I made sure to use it. I miss that community and I’m glad I have a little bit of it here in Madrid.
