18.2.14 GB is "Best Visitor Centre 2014"; XVIII Festival de Jerez Starts Soon
The UK drinks trade magazine Drinks International has chosen Gonzalez Byass as the best visitor centre in the world of wine for 2014. It is certainly popular, with 200,000 visitors annually being collected in the town by a little train which takes them on a trip round the bodegas, followed by a few nibbles and a glass or two of Tio Pepe.
The XVIII Festival de Jerez starts of Friday and runs till the 8th March. There is a huge programme of events planned, from Flamenco song, dance,ballet to a Flamenco & Sherry Experience at Gonzalez Byass. Various Flamenco clubs will be doing shows in memory of the great Jerez singer Juan Moneo "El Torta" who died recently. The town will be echoing to the strains of the buleria, and the taste of Sherry. GO! For all the information you need, go to www.jerez.es the town council website.
