In the blinding, chalky hills of the Andalusian coastal region of Jerez, Spain, exists the birthplace of one of the world’s most unique and laborious wines. With an intensity and distinctness that separate it from all others, Sherry has historically been esteemed in the company of Champagne, Madeira, Port, and Tokai. Interestingly, Christopher Columbus departed from this region on his search for the New World, likely making Sherry the first imported wine sipped in the Americas.

Contrary to popular belief, the majority of these fortified wines are dry. They range from crisp and briny to full-bodied and nutty (and still dry!), to lusciously deep, dark, and sweet.

At this free tasting hosted by Thalia Varshay from Fiasco Fine Wines, you will be able to taste through a variety of Sherry styles and learn about one of the wine world’s unsung heroes.
