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.
Children in Jerez are being taught the art of
the venencia. During
the harvest festival (Fiesta de la Vendimia) there will be a venencia competition
for primary 3 and 4 kids organised by the Consejo. It is felt very important
that children grow up knowing something about the city in which they live and
what made it so famous, and about potential jobs in the future.

Barbadillo has chosen 12 people this year for
induction into the Orden de la Solear. Every year this event recognises people who
have done much to promote Manzanilla. The two most notable are the president/editor
of the newspaper ABC, Catalina Luca de Tena and Peter Liem, who with Jesus
Barquin of Equipo Navazos fame, wrote an excellent book about Sherry.
