Tour options

My name is Carlos, I am wine-certified (Distinction in WSET Level 2) and I am excited to show you all about Sherry in Cadiz province. We can adapt the tasting to your budget, from basic Sherry tasting, Premium Sherry tasting up to Premium and VORS (Very Old Rare Sherry) tasting. If Sherry isn't your style, we also offer a tasting of a variety of fantastic local wines from Andalusia region.

Many people think that sherry is just a sweet drink but there are many more varieties to learn about. You will learn the process of how to produce Sherry, biological and oxidative ageing, all the different types of Sherry, where Sherry comes from, how to do a wine tasting, and about wine and food pairing. If you want to add tapas that pair with each sherry we can also provide some delicious food pairings.
