A blog and review on all things Sherry. It is about tasting, enjoyment and learning more about the World’s Finest Wine. "Sherry is a thoroughbred" as Javier Hidalgo rightly puts it. Included are the amazing local Brandies and the remarkably good table wines also produced in the province of Cádiz.
10/10/14 Beltran Domecq Tasting, New App at Tio Pepe
Beltran Domecq has delivered a tutored tasting as part of the celebrations of Semana
de los Mayores (Senior Citizen Week). It took place at the Consejo’s bodega,
San Gines, and has become one of the most outstanding events of the Semana de
los Mayores programme. Most of those attending grew up with a close
relationship to the culture and development of Sherry.

Bodegas Tio Pepe has incorporated an innovative
called Guideo into bodega visits. The app uses the latest geo-positioning and
augmented reality technology on mobile devices. It is the first app to do so
and it offers a great service to tourism. During a visit to the bodega the
tourist can access a lot of information such as images, anecdotes, curiosities
and videos at any point which show what happened there. You can even put yourself
in the picture to add to the experience. The app, which is available free at
App Store or Google Play and works on iOS and Android works offline and only
needs to be online to download the app.
