What should you expect?

This tabanco tour in Jerez is a 3 hour tour experience visiting 5 different tabancos in a private group tour. With just you and your family or friends, you can experience the tour in a much more personal way. We try to limit the group size to 8, but please contact us if your group is bigger. My name is Carlos, and I will meet you in front of the tourism office in Jerez de la Frontera to start your tabanco tour. I am knowledgeable and passionate about local food and wine and am wine-certified (WSET Level 2).

You will learn the process to how to produce Sherry, all the different types of sherry, how to do a wine tasting, local cuisine and explain about wine and food pairings. Expect to hear about local traditions and cultural anecdotes through each of the tapas, and it will tell part of the culture and history of Cadiz province.

What is included?

This tour includes 5 sherries, 5 tapas and a wine certified guide. Taste a variety of local tapas such as anchovies in vinegar, Iberian ham, patatas aliñadas, bull’s meat, pig cheek, salmorejo, menudo, chicharrón, red pepper filled with local cheese, etc. Some foods will depend on the season. Tapas are paired with a sherry or wine, or alternative beverages for children and non-wine drinkers.

Come hungry, leave full and happy!
