Copa Jerez is a biennial international gastronomic competition that pits teams made up of a chef and a sommelier from seven countries (Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, the United States, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) against each other. The aim of each team is to present the best pairing of a three-course gastronomic menu with Marco de Jerez wines.
