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!
Genuine Andalusia started in the Sherry town of el Puerto de Santa María. This town is locally known as “El Puerto” and it 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.
We started our collaboration writing about how Sherry and Flamenco Music originated from South West Spain. In this first piece we also described the strong presence of Flamenco Music in the Sherry Triangle towns.
We also shared our knowledge on the Spring fairs in the Sherry triangle. Our article is a great introduction to the magical and colorful atmosphere of these festivals, that we recommend to experience in person.
Another great read talks about the so-called fiestas de las vendimia. These are the celebrations that take place in Jerez each year following the grape harvest in September.
We also wrote about Zambombas of Jerez. These are the Sherry and Flamenco Christmas parties that fill the streets, plazas and social clubs of the Sherry Capital from early December until Christmas day.
We couldn’t leave behind the iconic Sherry Taverns of Jerez, locally known as tabancos. Our piece 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.
