12.5.16 Jerez is off to New York; New Williams & Humbert Lecture
Jerez is off to New York. Divino Jerez is the title of an exhibition by photographer María Higuero in celebration of the Congress of the Federation of Spanish Associations in the United States which takes place between 17-24 May at La Nacional, 239 West 14th Street, New York NY 10011. La Nacional is the oldest Spanish society in New York having been established over 150 years ago, and has seen such greats as Dalí, Picasso, Buñuel and García Lorca pass through its doors. During the congress those attending will be able to enjoy food and Sherry matching with wine from González Byass tutored by Sherry educator Virginia Miller, director of Discover Sherry on 20 May at the gala dinner.
Williams & Humbert’s excellent series of lectures continues with “Sherry: Looking to the Future” which will be imparted at the bodega by Luís Pérez Rodriguez, owner of Bodegas Luís Pérez Finca Vistahermosa on Thursday 19 May at 20.30. Luís is a professor of food technology and oenology at the University of Cádiz, and while the bodega specialises in table wine, his son “Willy” Pérez is doing interesting things with Sherry at the bodega. This should be fascinating and will be followed with a glass of Sherry. Do attend if you can, it will be really fascinating and there is no charge.
