It’s World Sherry Day, or perhaps I should say World Sherry Week!
From May 20th – 26th, bars, restaurants and wineries all over the world will be pulling out all the stops to celebrate this wonderful Spanish product with tasting events, workshops, food and wine pairings and other activities.
The final day of this weeklong celebration coincides with the 80th anniversary of the founding of the Denomination Origin (D.O.) of Sherry-Jerez-Xeres-Manzanilla-San Lúcar de Barrameda, a quality designation created to protect the traditions of the famed Sherry Solera and Criadera wine-making process from Jerez.
If you find you can’t make it to one of the events listed on the official website for World Sherry Day, try celebrating on your own, with one of the great sherry and food pairing recipes found in The Perfect Marriage. The Art of Matching Food and Sherry Wines from Jerez.
