The " Tapeo" is a Spanish tradition .Tell the legend that in the old bars in Madrid, had a lot of flies flying around the tables, to guard against, and that flies didn’t fell in the glasses of wine, they covered(tapar, in spanish) the glass with a slice of row ham or a piece of bread, while they talked, and later they eat the bread or the ham slice .Today the action of cheating means finds with friends and to drink some wine ,with a many kind of “tapas”. Actually delicious. In the most made with Serrano or bellotas (pata negra) ham or sea food

Use your creativity and create your own favorite “tapas” .Basically you need a slices of bread, garlic, row ham, shrimps, manchego chees and a good Spanish olive oil. And also a good tempranillo from Ribera del Duero or a good Alvariño
