Jerez is the birthplace of sherry and this full-day tour from Cádiz will reveal all the secrets of the world-famous fortified wine. You'll explore historic Jerez, tuck into delicious Andalusian cuisine, tour the region’s vineyards, and enjoy a sherry tasting workshop at a local winery.

What to expect?

  • Head to the countryside to visit its vineyards and learn about an oenological tradition dating back more than 3,000 years. During this time, the region has developed its own distinctive elaboration method. The climate is ideally suited to three grape varietals: Palomino, used to make drier sherries, and Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, both used for sweeter varieties. Uncover the mysteries of how these sherries are made, root to glass.

  • A truly unique wine, sherry is produced exclusively in Jerez, situated in a triangle of land formed by the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, and El Puerto de Santa Maria. The landscape’s versatility is reflected in the wide range of grapes grown here, each with its own distinctive character. You can easily find a sherry for every dish and every occasion.

  • Take a workshop on venencia, and learn to use one of the winery’s most symbolic artifacts. Enjoy some sherry, then test your knowledge in a fun competition between the workshop participants. Venture into Jerez to admire its architectural heritage. Visit the Cathedral, the Alcazar, and the churches of the Reconquista in the medieval town center. Relax in Arenal and Plateros squares before exploring San Miguel and Santiago’s vibrant squares, where bar terraces alternate with shops.
