The Sherry Wines Triangle
Years do not pass by in vain, who dares to deny it? Here, in the sherry wines triangle lands, destiny has been kind and every passing year brings 12 months of temperament, singularity and graceful finesse. Sherry is the product of centuries-old trading links between countries – in the bodegas you’ll find historical links to the French, German and British: multiculturalism is a key aspect of Jerez’s wines.
Ultimately, these are wines to experiment with, and enjoy; wines without limits. It is time that sherry wines gained the appreciation it deserves and became known for its extraordinary versatility and exceptional quality. It’s also time to acknowledge the extraordinary work of the wine-makers themselves, archaeologists in search of past live footprints. If all this sounds like a foreign language to you, fear not.
This inspiring sherry wines tour through the “Sherry Triangle” of Jerez, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria will decode all the secrets of this unique family of wines – from the unique terroir to the singular soleras and criaderas aging system – and shows that sherry is most definitely cool.

SHERRY WINES FROM SANLUCAR
Today you will discover the essential effect of sea and winds on sherry wines. Sanlucar is the only area where manzanilla sherry is produced. You’ll arrive in the upper city - enjoy a coffee by the Medina Sidonia Palace - and start walking down as you listen about the impressive stories of Sanlucar and you reach the bodega. Once inside, amid the perfumed walls, taste the entire range of wines as you walk through stunning patios and cellars. You will start making the difference with the sherries from Jerez. More salty, lighter and fresher, manzanilla sherry wine in Sanlucar, and fino sherry in Jerez have similarities, but are clearly distinct from each other.

All the private excursions that she arranged were excellent. At some point during every tour our guide received a message from our agent checking in on how everything was going. We felt very well taken care of during our honeymoon and very thankful for all the assistance Valeska provided in making this dream vacation come true.
