|Consejo Regulador de las Denominaciones de Origen "Jerez-Xérès-Sherry" - "Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda" - "Vinagre de Jerez"|
The principal purpose of the Federation of Bodegas of Jerez (Fedejerez) is the management and defence of the interests of the Associations of Wine, Brandy, Vinegar and Vineyard companies which count among its members.
Among the member associations are the Asociación de Criadores y Exportadores de Sherry (or Sherry producers and exporters’ association, known as ACES). Among its many promotional activities, since 2005 it has promoted and organised the international competition for gastronomic marriages with Sherry wines, the Copa Jerez, along with Sherry’s governing body, the Consejo Regulador de las Denominaciones de Origen Jerez-Xérès-Sherry, Manzanilla - Sanlúcar de Barrameda y Vinagre de Jerez.
This great encounter is an important part of the generic promotion strategy of Fedejerez and the Consejo Regulador de las Denominaciones de Origen Jerez-Xérès-Sherry, Manzanilla - Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Its objectives are to attract the consumer to Sherry and Manzanilla wines through their perfect symbiosis with international gastronomy, to further knowledge of all the varieties of Sherry and their fantastic aptitude to match any dish and demonstrate their great potential on tables all over the world.
Since 2005 the prestige of the competition has grown enormously and it is now in its seventh edition.
