12.7.14 Fiesta de la Vendimia 2014
This year’s harvest festival is very special, Jerez being European City of Wine. Preparations are already underway for the festival which takes place between the 9th and 14th of September and encompasses more than 50 events.
The first and most iconic event is the treading of the grapes at the Cathedral, after which there will be cultural and gastronomic events as well as opportunities to get to know the Sherry wine. Among these will be irresistible activities such as tastings led by experts marrying food, Sherry and flamenco at the Alcazar.
There will be concerts, junior grape treading, introduced last year and a resounding success, and the junior venencia competition, shop window competitions and many bodegas will be welcoming visitors.
