This is truly one of my happy places. Sitting at the bar in front of Rafael’s jamón cutting station at Las Teresas. I’ve been coming here for more than 20 years and it always feels like home. My home.
This was Sherry Túnel 2018. The first one I have been to, and it was great fun. Got to try a few sherries I hadn’t tasted previously, and also meet a few new people, as well as meet up with old friends.
After the event Peter, Tomoko and I went to Bocarambo for lunch, followed by a delightful surprise thanks to Tomoko – a sherry ice cream tasting at La Rosa de Oro.

Today I am heading to Jerez to attend the 3rd Sherry Túnel, organised by sommelier and fellow sherry educator Maria Carmen Martinez (aka Miss Catas). It’s my first time going to this event, and it seemed like a great way to finish off Sherry Week (which ends tomorrow). Will report back later.
How’s your Saturday going?
This photo of a floppy – almost boneless! – Luna shows how happy and relieved I am that my dear friend Ann got through her surgery yesterday without a hitch. It also shows how she is feeling right now, now back at home and ready to heal. Sending strong thoughts to you darling and hope to tapeo again with you soon. xx
