Sherryweek 2017: Mehr als 2.500 Events in 30 Ländern

In ihrem vierten Jahr hat sich die Sherryweek als wichtigstes jährliches Event für Sherrylover etabliert: Tausende Events auf der ganzen Welt, von Norwegen bis Brasilien, von Taiwan bis Kolumbien.

In diesem Jahr ist die Sherryweek weiter gewachsen und konnte die Anzahl der Events um 25 Prozent erhöhen. Durch den Hashtag #sherryweek wurden auf Social Media auch Events sichtbar, die nicht offiziell registriert waren, sodass sich eine Gesamtanzahl von nahezu 3.000 Events ergibt.

In der Woche vom 6-12 November 2017 wurde Sherry zum globalen Gesprächsthema, sodass News über das Event über 15.000 Posts hervorgebracht haben und damit knapp 50 Millionen mögliche Kontakte auf Twitter, Facebook und Instagram erreicht haben (Quelle: Tweetbinder).

I am delighted to see Sherry Week going from strength to strength, year by year, and the key role played by Social Media in bringing the events to the attention of Sherry lovers all around the world. Sherry Week also brings together an unusually disparate range of people, of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, with a common message of “alegría” happiness conveyed in engaging photos which capture the sense of enjoyment which Sherry generates. Through live Social Media events, Sherry aficionados get a glimpse into the inner sanctum of the Consejo, our tasting room, the very heart of the Sherry world. This is a fantastic opportunity to build on our sense of community.

During Sherry Week I see customers being adventurous and open-minded. I’ve converted a few of our casual punters into avid Sherry drinkers. The demographic of those converts is truly mixed - from the cool kids of the northern quarter, to the more experienced drinker, Sherry is starting to make its way in Manchester again.

For Sherry Week we organised a tasting by wine and cheese expert Guillermina Sanchez Cerezo. We tried many types of Sherry with our great cheeses, including the World’s Best Cheese 2016, Norwegian Kraftkar. Interest in Sherry wines is increasing here in Madrid, and we’re proud to be part of this growing movement.

Our events for this year’s Sherry Week exceeded every expectation we had. It was amazing to see so many people come out and participate, learn, but most importantly enjoy Sherry all week long. We're excited to see the number of people interested in Sherry grow every year, we already can't wait for Sherry Week 2018!
Sergio Monleon, chef, La Marcha Tapas Bar, Berkeley, USA

In my opinion, events like ISW are key for different kinds of people to discover these wines. In recent years, initiatives like this have led to an increase in demand for Sherry Wine, and a wider offering. The great diversity of these wines shouldn’t be limited to just one week; their character as competitively-priced gastronomic wines is a huge advantage. Another important point for this week is to change the concept of when these wines are consumed, since outside the Sherry area, they’re seen as special occasion wines, rather than for every day. The initiative to have a dedicated Sherry Week to celebrate these wines around the world is essential to their resurgence, so that they can achieve the status they deserve.
