PORT & SHERRY AT THE TASTING ROOM
Sherry from Spain is perhaps the most versatile and expanse of flavour of any wine producing region - those who have visited the Sherry Triangle north of Cadiz in the south east of Spain will know well the difference in flavour from the Sherries produced in the distinctly different styles- Jerez de la Frontera is renowned for its sherry, as well as having a longstanding equestrian tradition and a claim to being the home of flamenco
A port at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river, Sanlúcar de Barrameda is also famous for its bodegas where you can sample its acclaimed Manzanilla, a dry sherry. You can access the Doñana National Park from Sanlúcar via boat. A popular destination for city dwellers from Cadiz and Seville, the third town in the triangle is El Puerto de Santa María, which has a smattering of fine mansions as evidence of its wealth in the 18th century and some superb seafood restaurants and bars.
Sherries are becoming far more fashionable, led by the upsurge of popularity of youth (no longer the drink of the older generation) and are prefect to drink on their own or as a wonderful compliment to food
We have a great selection of small bodega produced Sherries - a great way to start an evening after work with a crisp, dry flavoursome Manzanilla
