A different way to discover the beauty and charm of Jerez de la Frontera, the home of sherry which sits between a magical present-day decadence and the magnificence of a glorious past, is walking around the historic center on a tabancos tour. But what is a tabanco? A tabanco is a historic tavern born in Jerez back in the 17th century. Exclusive to this city, it brought together the social concept of a bar, with the commercial purpose of selling wine dispatched straight from the barrel. Women were prohibited from entering tabancos for years. As well as being popular places for social get-togethers, tabancos played a significant role in local cultural and political development.
In the last few years they have been pulled back from the edge of extinction, and are now being revived in their function as bars more than wine stores. A tabancos tour is a vibrant experience, an ideal way to understand the Andalusian spirit and feel the close connection between wine, flamenco and arts.
