Taste and Explore


Join us as we explore one of the most delicious and internationally known products of the region, Sherry wine. Expand your knowledge of sherry making while delighting your pallet as we tour two of our most famous sherry wineries. The bodegas (wine cellars) will guide you through their history and process of sherry and brandy making while showing you why this region is the sherry capital of the world and the only place you can have such an experience.

Sherry wine has played an intricate part in the history of the region ever since the Phoenicians brought the grape vine to Spain when they first landed on the Iberian cost in 1100B. C. Sherry making continued throughout the centuries bringing us to the present where now there are 12 different kinds of fortified sherries from very dry to very sweet as well as brandy.

At each bodega there will be a tour ending in a sherry tasting.

**We can create a customized tour for you**
