Three towns, three treats: Sherry, Cheese and Sweets! | day trip
Southern Spain keeps wonderful artisanal food and wine producers in its different regions. This is a treat that we value immensely and that we love to share with our guests during this Sherry, Cheese and Sweets day trip.
This foodie excursion will take us to visit and taste the wonders of three different small food and wine producers in three different parts of the province of Cadiz.
Visiting these producers in their workplaces and spending time with them will allow us not only to savour the local delicacies of Andalusia but also to discover the character of the region, its lifestyle and its ways to understand and respect food and wine.
We will start our day trip by driving to the little coastal town of Rota. There we will visit a local goat’s cheese factory that is a great example of self-sufficiency in every sense of the word. Their heavenly, awarded cheeses will be the stars of our first round of tastings of the day, before driving to our second destination: Jerez.
In Jerez we will visit a family owned Sherry bodega specialising in Very Old Rare Sherry (VORS). There we will do the corresponding Sherry tastings too while we are explained the ageing process and particularities of each type.
This will surely open our appetite so with all this knowledge, we will go for lunch to a fabulous local restaurant serving quality local food and wine. There you will be introduced to the art of pairing food and Sherry by your personal foodie host for the day.
Then, and with some room left for a bit of sweet indulgence, we will drive to the quaint white village of Medina Sidonia.
There we will take a short walking tour with stops in a few traditional sweet shops selling different local specialities that we won’t be able to resist. This will complete our foodie program for the day and then we will drive back to your accommodation.
Travellers wishing to learn about Andalusia through its artisanal food and wine producers and local delicacies are in for a treat with this Sherry, Cheese and Sweets day trip.

Your personal host 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 savouring the wonders of this province.
