31.5.14 International Sherry Week - Are YOU Ready?; Essential Tapas & Sherry
Sherry Fever is spreading round the world! The international calendar of Sherry events is rapidly filling up. From last year’s inaugural World Sherry Day of 200 events, this year has 1,200 events - so far -double what was hoped for! It all kicks off on Monday, and there will be live tastings, open doors at bodegas, talks, tapas, seminars, maridajes (Sherry and food matching). Japan alone has 200 events registered, largely thanks to the great work of Tomoko Kimura, a delightful fellow Sherry nut!
So get your skates on! Don’t miss out, get in on the World’s largest Sherry event: International Sherry Week! It is easy, and all it will cost is a bottle (or 3!) of Sherry. Your event with friends, online, at home, in a bar or restaurant can be registered free on www.isherryweek.com. Also have a look at #sherrylovers on Twitter or www.youtube.com and www.sherry.org. and #isherryw.
No fewer than 82 bars in the Sherry zone are participating in the Essential Tapas and Sherry Route. This promotion begins on Thursday the 5th of June and covers the three Sherry towns of Sanlucar, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Jerez until the 15th. Participating bars will offer one of their star tapas and a glass of Sherry for just 3 Euros, and customers are invited to vote for the best. Some of the best bars/ restaurants in the area are participating, so this is a great opportunity to try some food and Sherry matching. And to see just how well they match.
