Jerez de la Frontera became famous throughout the world for its sweet wines named after the town, which the British pronounced "sherry". It is called "de la Frontera" because it once stood on the frontier between the Moorish and the Christian realms. Jerez is also famous, throughout the world, for its fine horses and brilliant singers and dancers of flamenco.
The distinctive wine in Jerez has been exported for centuries, it was even praised by Shakespeare. It is distinctive because the strong sun gives the grapes a high sugar content. British merchants have been involved in the wine trade here for centuries, producing and shipping a fortified wine known as sherry.
Authentic sherry is gaining popularity again, especially amongst lovers of fine wine. Sherry offers an incredible range of styles from the driest to the sweetest of wines. They are also great wines for pairing with food. There is no better match than a bone dry refreshingly tangy fino than with Spainʼs unique Iberian ham. Or what about a pungent amontillado with sheepʼs milk cheese or wild mushrooms, not to mention a rich oloroso with game meat or the heavenly dessert of ice-cream with sweet Pedro Ximenez poured over it. To learn more about these wonderful wines our tour takes you to Jerez de la Frontera, the principal town for sherry. Weʼll start off by visiting one of the larger wineries which has a greater range of sherries than anyone else. Youʼll get taken round spectacular buildings which all date from the 19th century.
