Legal Drinking Age in Spain (namely Andalucia)?

Jump to last reply

My 15 year-old daughter wants to try sangria and sherry in Spain. She'll be with us, her parents. What is the legal drinking age? We;ll be in Sevilla and the rest of Andalaucia..
I'm getting conflicting information on the internet.
Some sources say 18, some 16. One source (a page about Madrid) said minors could even order a drink in public if with their parents.

What's the correct info here? If I give her a sip of my sherry in a restaurant, will we be fined, or will no one bat an eyelash?
(I'm coming from the U.S. where, theoretically, it's illegal to give your kids a sip of alcohol, including beer and wine, in your own home.)

Thanks!
