Sherry tour in Chiclana de la Frontera
We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cadiz or Seville. Your guide will take you to our first winery in Cadiz province, in Chiclana de la Frontera. It is found within the "Marco de Jerez" and is the perfect place to understand the whole sherry process. From when the grapes arrive up to when they finish in the "bota" (barrel). Taste 4 sherries over 40 years old and a fino all straight from the cask with some tapas to pair them with.
Sherry tour in Sanlúcar de Barrameda
We will head to the famous city within the Cadiz coast near the national park of Doñana, Sanlúcar de Barrameda. On the way we will be able to enjoy views of the vineyards and see the vines. As well as observe the famous soil "albariza", high calcium soil that produces the best grape juice.
Enjoy touring a Sherry winery, where the guide will tell us why they are different from the "bodegas" in the other two cities of the Sherry triangle. The guide will show us around privately while tasting several wines straight from the cask (bota). In this cellar you will taste 3 VORS (these are over 50years old). Only three cities are allowed to age Spanish Sherry. Sanlúcar de Barrameda wineries not only have DO. Jerez-Sherry-Xérès but they are also under the D.O. Manzanilla.
At lunch time we will eat local Cadiz and Andalusian food, such as "salmorejo", "tortillita de camarones", "pescaíto frito", "gambas de Sanlúcar", with a sherry wine or a non-alcoholic drink, in the heart of this beautiful coastal city.
Jerez de la Frontera
We can also add another bodega here after lunch if you are interested but after the previous two bodegas I usually find that it is more than enough :).
