27.6.14 UK Journalists in Jerez; Sherry Wins Gold

Two journalists from two British newspapers, the Financial Times and the Observer are coming to Jerez next week to report on the local tourism, culture and wine. The provincial tourist office will be providing informational support to them. Interestingly, they will be travelling by Harley Davidson motorcycles, on which they have already toured round western Andalucia’s best tourism areas.
