DAY 2: FRI
SEVILLA - JABUGO - ARACENA - SEVILLA
- Breakfast
- Today we take you to the Sierra of Aracena in the province of Huelva, a mountainous area north-west of Seville near to the Portuguese border. It is here that the finest hams in the world are made from the Iberian pig. These hams are cured in the mountain air for up to 3 years and are considered by many people to be the jewel in the crown of Spanish gastronomy. This area is situated about 90 kilometres (56 miles) from Seville.
- We will first visit a farm to see how the pigs are reared and then go on to see the installations of one of the best ham producers in the village of Jabugo, a mythical name in Spain for fine ham. An expert will show us around, explaining the processes involved in the production of ham and of other products which come from the Iberian pig. At the end of the visit you will be able to taste the wonderful ham along with a glass of the best fino.
- Afterwards, we will go on to the town of Aracena where we will have a gourmet lunch at the finest restaurant in the area. We will sample the finest local produce including fresh cheese, ham, mushrooms, pork from the Iberian pig, wild asparagus, artichokes etc. Many of the dishes will vary according to the season. The meal will be accompanied by fine Spanish red wine and end with typical desserts.
- On arrival back in Seville you will be free until the evening when there is an olive oil tasting followed by a tapas tour of some of Sevilla´s best bars.
- Overnight in Sevilla

DAY 3: SAT
SEVILLA -
Sanlúcar de Barrameda - SEVILLA
- Breakfast
- Today´s excursion takes you to Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the second most important sherry town, unknown to the majority of foreign visitors. It is a similar distance from Seville as Jerez and is a beautiful place at the mouth of the Guadalquivir estuary. It looks across to the Doñana National Park and out on to the Atlantic Ocean Among the many styles of sherry wine produced here manzanilla stands out as a style of sherry made in a similar way to fino but lighter with a salty hint to it. The town is also known for very fine seafood; it is one of the best places for this in Spain.
- Prior to reaching the town we will be stopping to visit the vineyards of one of the bodegas (wineries). An expert will explain all the factors affecting grape production and quality, and will show us around the vines and vineyard installations. These installations are nearly always perched on top of a hill and afford panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Following this we will proceed to the bodega where we will be taken around what are spectacular buildings with their rows and rows of sherry butts stacked one on top of the other. These buildings are often compared to cathedrals and it is certainly true that they give the impression of being sanctified places.
- After a detailed tour including a complete explanation of the sherry-making process, there will be a tutored tasting of the different styles of wine which includes high end wines not normally tasted. The tasting will be carried out by an expert.
- After the bodega visit we will go to one of the fantastic seafood restaurant along the bank of the estuary where we will indulge in langoustines, shellfish, fine fried fish, sea food and rice stews etc., all washed down with the finest manzanilla.
- On our return to Sevilla you will be free to explore the city
- Overnight in Sevilla
