We are now official bloggers for the Sherry Wines website
In Genuine Andalusia, we specialise in customised Sherry Wine tours. And now we will also share our love for our local wines as official Sherry Wines bloggers!
As we explain in this post, Genuine Andalusia started in the Sherry town of el Puerto de Santa María. “El Puerto” for friends, forms the so-called Sherry Triangle together with the towns of Jerez and Sanlucar.
This triangle is the only region in the world where Sherry can be aged. So we’re most proud of treasuring a wine that is unique to our homeland.
Sherry is not only the wine we are most fond of and feel responsible to promote. It is also the heart of an iconic industry that has shaped the architecture, landscape, character, history and of course economy of this Southern Spanish region.
Majestic bodegas, idyllic vineyards, quaint vineyard-houses, quirky taverns, ancient casks, rustic tools, old vines, chalky soils, yearly harvests… They all form part of the imagery of our homeland and of its culture.
A local culture that we love to share with our guests during our tours and that we are now also spreading through the Sherry Wines website!
Being official Sherry Wines bloggers is an honour for Genuine Andalusia.
We already have some articles published in the Sherry Wines website. They all talk about cultural aspects of the Sherry Triangle and about how they relate to Sherry Wines.
In this article, we wrote about how Sherry and Flamenco Music originated from South West Spain. Also, we described the strong presence of Flamenco Music in the Sherry Triangle towns.
In this other one, we talked about the Spring fairs in the Sherry triangle. We described the magical and colorful atmosphere of these festivals that we recommend to experience in person.
This one talks about the celebrations that take place in Jerez each year following the grape harvest. These celebrations form part of a big festival called “Fiestas de la Vendimia”. It happens in September.
In this one, we wrote about Zambombas. These are the Sherry and Flamenco Christmas parties that fill the streets, plazas and social clubs of Jerez from early December until Christmas day.
This other article describes the iconic Sherry Taverns of Jerez, locally known as tabancos. It includes a list of our favourite tabancos with their addresses.
We hope our contributions will help to promote the rich and colorful culture of the Sherry Triangle. This is the area where we are based and that we call home.
If you’re interested in learning more about life in the World Sherry capital, we encourage you to read this other blog post.
