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.
22.7.14 Harvest Festival Poster; Good Results at Williams & Humbert
The poster for the 2014 Fiesta de la Vendimia
by Luis Gonzalo has been unveiled by the mayoress of Jerez along with the festival programme. The fiesta
is dedicated this year to the venenciador, and will start with the traditional
treading of the grapes at the main door of the cathedral at 20.00 on the 9th
September. To include the kids, there will be a junior venencia competition,
and for the adults there will be lots of tastings, food matching and grand
tastings at the Alcazar.

Williams& Humbert has achieved double digit
growth thanks to export markets. Sales have grown especially in Asian markets allowing the firm,
controlled by the Medina family, to look at new projects. 75% of the firm’s 40
million euro turnover comes from exports to over 80 countries. The firm has
always tried to offer a diverse range of products, from gin, brandy, rum, table
wines to Iberian pork and, of course Sherry.
