Congratulations to our finalists!

Copa Jerez is an international competition featuring top chefs and sommeliers from across Europe and North America, in which each team is commissioned with choosing the ultimate matches of Sherry wines with food.  It was created to showcase the incredible diversity of Sherry wine and its remarkable ability to match with food.

The live finals will be held at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City on December 4th, 2018, from 11am to 4pm.  There, the finalists will present their dishes and pairings to our distinguished panel of judges — Chef Bertrand Bouquin, Culinary Director of The Mountaintop at Desert Mountain Club in Arizona, and 2011 US COPA Jerez Winner, Andy Seymour, BAR Partner and owner of Liquid Production, Inc, Jacques Bezhuidenhout of San Francisco, and winner of the first US Sherry Cocktail Competition, and Steve Olson, BAR Partner, aka maguey geek
