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.

  1. Hi, I'm going to be in Jerez at the time of the festival. I cannot see any reference on their website to the Cathedral ceremony to which you refer. Is there another source of information please? Thanks
