Jerez vineyards and Sherry bodegas | day trip
The Southern Spanish region of Jerez has a trimillenary yet unknown wine scene and this day trip is aimed at the discovery and enjoyment of its most iconic wine: Sherry.
This ancient wine-making tradition has shaped the landscape, economy, architecture, social composition, musical expression and overall character of this little corner of Andalusia, which is the only area in the world were Sherry can be produced.
Known as the Sherry Triangle, this particular enclave is formed by three towns: Jerez de la Frontera itself, El Puerto de Santa María, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This day trip will take us to Jerez, the biggest of the three.
Upon arrival to Jerez, we will start our discovery journey by visiting a vineyard. There we will meet a lovely local vigneron, with whom we will learn the particularities of the soil, of the climate, of the vines and of the grapes that make Sherry so unique.
After our lesson of Sherry viticulture , we will do a first round of sherry tastings led by him. Then, with all this introductory knowledge, we will be driven into Jerez old town to visit an artisanal sherry bodega.
At the Sherry bodega we will learn how Sherries are carefully aged and we will do a second round of tastings. During this second tasting, we will be focusing on the ageing process of the different types of sherry while we also learn about the fascinating art of pairing food and sherry.
Then we will have a fabulous lunch in a local restaurant where we will be able to try different food and sherry pairings.
After lunch and surely converted into a Sherry lover, we will drive you back to your accommodation.
This Jerez day trip is ideal for wine enthusiasts staying in other locations in Andalusia, wishing to visit the Sherry capital in one day to enjoy and learn about Sherry there.
It includes private transportation in a modern and comfortable vehicle with A/C to and from your accommodation. Your personal sherry host (a certified Sherry Educator by the Sherry Regulatory Board) and your dedicated driver will pick you up in the morning and will drive you back in the late afternoon after spending a great day together in the Sherry capital.
*Please note that we also have an extended 3-day tour of the Sherry Triangle for those travellers willing to have a deeper immersion into Sherry Wines.
