It’s a great time to be in the south of Spain now.
A week-long of festivities starts today, two weeks after Easter. Processions, parties, lots of flamenco dancing, food, sherry and more sherry!
To the uninitiated, sherry is an old-fashioned drink – perhaps thought as a sweet style of wine popular perhaps in the 80s…
But the aficionados will tell you that Sherry – with it’s whole glorious variety of styles from bone-dry to sticky sweet – is probably the most complex of wines in Spain and the world. The greatest Finos, Manzanillas and Palo Cortados are as amazing as they are rare.
Well, there’s no better time to try than this week! And be sure to pair with some delicious Jabugo Ham while you’re at it…
