In the wine cellar Malauva they have what they call urban wine with a variety of activities ranging from traditional tastings, pairings, treasure hunts, blind tasting games, roulette wine, etc., in an informal and playful atmosphere. This shop-wine bar is tastefully decorated with a very cool and transgressive style. They even have a Malauva accessories catalog, products with their logo to buy/gift. The concept of Malauva was born in Valladolid, expanded to Palencia in the summer of 2012 and is also in Madrid, next to Mercado de San Antón, which I have also visited. We tasted small blind sweets to identify flavors thereof, associated with wine, fruits like cherry, watermelon, melon, banana, and citrus fruits such as tangerine, orange and grapefruit, and products like leather and others that are hard for a rookie to identify. They have their own very soft beer, and are developing another with more body and flavor. I also tried On, an energy drink based on wine with fresh ginger. Enjoy it with passion is the motto, very suitable for the passion the 2 partners have focused on the project.
In the historic and commercial center of Medina del Campo is the cafe bar Yovoy. Here you can enjoy tapas that are prepared with seasonal ingredients of the area - this results in a range appetizing flavors both traditional and more innovative. The food can be accompanied by local wines: Earth Medina, Rueda and Ribera del Duero. The hotel is a classic local hostelry. It is open in the morning for breakfast, continuing with tapas and coffee and then well into the night to unwind with a drink after evening pinchos. You can take advantage of any of the two different areas: a bar most suitable to consume standing up and other cozy area decorated with posters of former local musical groups.
