On this private wine tour we take 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 Doņana 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. The excursion follows a similar pattern as that to Jerez , visiting a vineyard before proceeding to the bodega where, after an extended tour, there will be a tutored tasting.
After the bodega visit we will go to one of the fantastic seafood restaurants along the bank of the estuary where we will indulge in langoustines, shellfish, fine fried fish, seafood and rice stews etc., all washed down with the finest manzanilla.
