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.
20.12.18 Bag in Box Controversy Finally Over; Sherry Culture Centre
The Superior Court of Justice of Andalucía
has ruled against the appeal lodged by the Junta and the Artisan Bodegas of Sanlúcar against a previous ruling banning
Bag in Box last October. The new ruling, which is definitive and brings
this long-running saga to an end states that the appellants´ case was
insubstantial and sought to alter the previous verdict which is forbidden in
Spanish law. The new ruling confirmed the validity of the previous ruling and
the actions and agreements of Fedejerez the Consejo Regulador, which refused to
issue DO labels for after repeated plenary agreements against it´s use.

Jerez is to have a Centre for the Culture of Sherry which will be located
on the upper floor of the beautiful Claustros de Santo Domingo. This week a survey will
be carried out to estimate the works required which include improving access and
fire safety. The Ribadeneira chapel will be refurbished and become the
principal access to the Claustros. The project is funded with EU money.
