4.11.15 Sherry Symposium
The Consejo and the University of Cádiz (UCA) are holding a scientific symposium called “Sherry in the 80 Years of the Denominación de Origen 1935-2015” which will be the climax of the large range of activities organised by the Consejo in celebration of its 80th birthday. The symposium will run from the 26th – 28th November and it is hoped that it will fill a gap in the History of Sherry: the last 80 years, which, as the Consejo director César Saldaña explains, have been poorly documented in comparison to the multitude of documents and studies which exist from the XVIII and XIX centuries.
César Saldaña appeared at a press conference yesterday with Beltrán Domecq and Casimiro Mantell, vice rector of research at the UCA, to present the official programme for the symposium which will have a multi-disciplinary character covering science, history, economy, society, companies, commercialisation and more through nine lectures from academics and experts in the relevant areas. There will also be a series of round tables and 16 communications selected from the many brought by the researchers with the idea of collating it all in a book for publication.
Subscription remains open as there are 20 places left at €40 from the original 100 and they can be applied for at the Consejo website (www.sherry.org). Bodegas Tradición and González Byass will be offering a glass of Sherry to everyone present.
