Belgian Copa Jerez 2015 winners, design exclusive Sherry Pairing menu for International Sherry Week.

Chef Nico Corbesier, and sommelier, Andy De Brouwe from Les Elevuers, in Halles (near Brussels) joined the global International Sherry Week celebrations last week to present a spectacular Sherry Pairing menu with local seasonal products, each paired with a different style of sherry.  

Importers, sommeliers, wine professionals and press gathered together to celebrate Sherry Week whilst discovering the versatility of the wines through the specially designed menu.  

Guests were guided through the tasting by Master of Wine, Pedro Ballesteros Lopez, who shared his own passion for the wines and why each pairing was a perfect match.
