Wanted to give a bit of publicity to this absolutely cracking event coming up in May. Previous editions have been in Jerez and were excellent – really top class bodegas and atmosphere – and although it will be in Seville this year I don’t expect any less.
I love the emphasis – excellent sherries and manzanillias alongside top class wines from every region and style, and looking at that list there are some really exciting bodegas, old and new. Some favourites of this blog both from the sherry region – Emilio Hidalgo, Barbadillo, Forlong, Gutierrez Colosia, José Estevez (owner of Valdespino and La Guita) and Bodegas Luis Perez – and beyond.
But don’t take my word for it, here is Juan Manuel Martin Hidalgo, the organizer and founder of the tradition explaining last year’s event in person (in Spanish).
All the details are on the web. See you there!
