The famous word Sherry comes from “Sherish”. That’s the name that the Muslims gave to the city of Jerez, as we know it today. Previous civilizations in the area such as Phoenicians and Romans had already discovered the secrets of the production of Sherry wines.
Through the centuries this ancient tradition has shaped the landscape, economy and culture of the only area where Sherry has always been produced, known as the Sherry Triangle.
This particular region of the province of Cadiz in South West Spain is formed by three towns: El Puerto de Santa María, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Jerez de la Frontera.
This tour will take us to Jerez, the biggest of the three. We will start by visiting a vineyard, where we will meet a couple of lovely local oenologists. They will take us for a small walk through their beautiful vines, where they will explain the particularities of the soil, the climate and the grapes that make Sherry so unique. With all this knowledge, we will drive into Jerez old town to visit a very special sherry bodega where Sherries are carefully aged and we will do some tasting there.
After sampling the wonders of the local wines, we will have a fabulous lunch in a local restaurant.
