26.4.18 Seville Feria Breaks Sherry Sales Record Again
This year’s Feria de Abril, Seville’s annual festival and one of the largest in Spain, has broken the record again for consumption of Sherry. Sales during the feria season in Andalucía account for approximately 38% of total annual home market Sherry sales. The vast majority of feria sales are half bottles of Fino and Manzanilla of which well over a million and a half were sold, averaging well over 1,000 per caseta. Manzanilla was by far the best seller accounting for 80% and the best-selling brands were La Guita, Solear and La Gitana in that order. The Feria de Abril marks the starting point for the Andalusian feria season which runs into August, so much more Sherry will be sold, especially at the Feria del Caballo in Jerez, which starts on 5th May, and the ferias at El Puerto and Sanlúcar, which are not to be missed.
