17.2.16 New Jerez Restaurant; Antonio Flores Personality of the Year
A new haute cuisine restaurant is to open in Jerez staffed entirely by disabled people. Universo Santi will be sited at the Finca del Altillo, once the home of González Byass founder Manuel María González Ángel, and is named after the famous chef Santi Santamaría who died five years ago. His wife and daughter joined representatives of various foundations which support the initiative to present it at the Consejo Regulador yesterday. It is pretty certain that the restaurant will be open by the end of this year.
González Byass oenologist Antonio Flores has picked up another award: the Wine Up guide’s Personality of the Year in recognition of his professionalism and being one of those responsible for the #Sherryrevolution leading to the resurrection of Sherry to world status. Antonio gave a Sherry masterclass during the ceremony at the Museo Torre del Vino in Socuéllamos (Ciudad Real).
