What you'll do

Our pintxo pote Discovery experience starts at Ribera Market, the largest covered food market in Europe and where both Michelin star chiefs and ordinary citizens stock up on some of the best food the city has to offer. We want you to get to understand the importance of food in how we socialize with each other and the special little tricks to do it like a local.

Afterwards, it is time to dive into the Old Town and its hidden secrets, so our first stop would be one of the classic bar where "txikiteros", the local wine drinkers, sing songs while drinking. If we are lucky we have the option to share with them a wine and a classic aperitivo discussing about the traditions and symbols of the Basque Country. Following, we will head to iconic Plaza Nueva, to taste 2 pintxos and learn about the local basque wine: Txakoli in one of its local bar.

Once we have visited the old Town, we will cross the River to enter the Ensanche, the economic center of the city.. We will visit a very historic bar an we will have the chance to taste Rioja wines, as well as pintxos that mix the most-avangarde cuisine with the most traditional flavours of local products.

Your tour ends here, where you´ll not only be full of tasty pintxos, but also have a newfound knowledge of local culture and traditions. And most importantly, you´ll feel like an authentic Bilbaíno
