Another Jerez Getaway, this time to attend a sherry tasting at the Consejo Regulador de Jerez (Sherry Council) in their magnificent Bodega San Ginés. As a Sherry Educator I like going to these tastings from time to time as a kind of “refresher course” because there is always something more to learn and experience about sherry wines, and on this occasion one of my favourite bodegas was presenting their wines.
Bodegas Lustau was the first sherry bodega I ever visited, with my friend Peter and I being given a special private tour by Director of Communications and Brand Ambassador for Lustau, Federico Sánchez-Pece, who took part in today’s presentation, along with Lustau’s master wine blender Sergio Martínez and César Saldaña, Director of the Consejo Regulador. Both Federico and César are gifted speakers and it’s always a pleasure to listen to them wax lyrical about their favourite subject.
After the cata Peter and I met up with sherry-loving friends Anne, Paul and Tomoko, but more on that later…
