Sherry has been called “the world’s most under-appreciated wine”. Difficult and time-consuming to make, this labour-intensive wine has been, for centuries, one of the most distinct wines in the world.
Learn about all the different styles of sherry, from the completely dry Finos to the rich, lusciously sweet cream sherry’s. Journey with us to the south of Spain and discover the solera system, the unique aging system that is so important to this enduring wine.
History and culture joined together with the climate grapes and regions are explained. Laws are defined, explained and each session we introduce the different styles of sherry from Fino to PX.
Discover the full range of Sherry wine styles and taste in a fun filled- educational environment. Learn and understand why each of the Sherry styles is so different in flavour, colour and aroma. Know what factors influence each style to create the resulting sherry.
With each course there is a recommended list of wines and/or spirits that is indicative of the classic wines and/or spirits of this country. We strongly encourage you to try these wines during the course of your studies.
