Propaganda 12 wine bar in Madrid – Review

Propaganda 12 wine bar centers their cooking around wine. They offer over 350 varieties of wine to be paired to perfection with the excellent Italian dishes (sadly for those that leave the kitchen.


Propaganda 12 offers a wide variety of antipasti, homemade fresh pasta, and a daily selection of seafood.

One of the commandments at Propaganda 11 is to experiment. They go beyond the traditional clichés that imply certain wine and food pairings. Do not expect a simple fish with white, red with meat rule at Propaganda 12. Let´s start with a simple, yet powerful thought. Most of us think about food, a dish we would like to try from the menu… then wine comes after. At Propaganda they are ready to turn things upside down and propose you to choose a wine you would like to taste and then, and only then, to consider which food is a good match!
Despite this may not be your first wish (after all you are in Spain!,) at Propaganda they specialize in Italian wines and they have a wide selection of wines and regions.

The menu is composed mainly of Italian recipes, though you will also find some recipes from other countries. Desserts are mainly Italian, though for cheese they offer a wider selection that includes other international classics

A chickpea stew served in many different formats, this is a great option to enjoy in winter, especially at some of the restaurants that specialize in cocido.
