2. Bodeguita Fabiola
Address: Calle Fabiola, 7, 41004 Sevilla, Spain
Hours: 8AM – 1AM / You can eat from 7.30PM at night here, which is not common! You usually have to wait at least until 8PM
This is a place we often visit often on our Tapas & Flamenco Tour, where you would discover the best tapas bars in Seville and the art of Flamenco firsthand by a flamenco artist with international performances all around the world. This is a great place to try “chicharrones” for instance. This dish simply consists of fried pork’s belly seasoned with salt, pepper, dried herbs and lots of garlic. This bar usually offers a fantastic atmosphere comprised mainly of locals going out for a drink. Next to it you can stop and try the orange wine in one of the oldest establishments in Seville. Taberna ell perejil, family run small and authentic.
5. Day Trip to Jerez + Wine & Sherry Tasting
One of the absolute best experiences in our list of the top 6 wine bars & tasting experiences in and around Seville is to embark on a day trip to the beautiful city of Jerez, which is the capital of famous Spanish sherry in all its delightful varieties, from very dry to dessert wines as well as Cadiz, on the seafront. Unlike well-travelled attractions such as Cordoba or Granada, Cadiz & Jerez have got their own soul, history, charm and claim to fame. In Jerez, you could try both sherry tasting or Spanish red wine and visit an old and family-run wine cellar, the world-famous Bodegas Lustau, founded in 1896! The perfect way to immerse yourself in the fantastic world of Spanish wine if sherry is not what you are looking for!
4. Day Trip to Ronda + White Villages & Wine Tasting
Another great way to explore the surroundings of Seville and better understand the long-standing wine-making tradition of the area is to visit Ronda, where famous DO Sierras of Malaga wines are made. The perfect day trip to Ronda would include stops in some of the lovely white villages found on the way, a stop in a lovely wine farm for a wine tasting with a view, at the beautiful Joaquin Fernandez domain for instance, known for its organic red wine served with a tasty local lunch, or at the finca Descalzo Viejos, one of the prettiest domains and architecture in Southern Spain. Lastly, the day would end with a final visit of Ronda and its impressive bridge!

The Antigua Abaceria of Triana is one of those last dry meats and cheese cuts serving comptoirs that is still open to this day. Situated 50 meters away from the gorgeous Puente de Triana, this is the perfect place to try some rosemary cheese, from the Sierra de Grazalema and some Vino de Naranja, or orange wine, a specialty wine produced in Huelva and Malaga, some orange peels are left to macerate with the wine, which gives it a unique taste and a higher alcoholic content. That’s definitely something unique that you should absolutely try while in Southern Spain. This is a stop we frequently make on our Triana Tapas Tour!
