Five U.S. Sherry Spots for Valentine's Day

Still finalizing your Valentine's Day plans? Well you’re in luck. Check out these spots around the U.S. for a taste of romantic Jerez. And just in time, too.

Andalucia, and Jerez in particular, is a region that is steeped in rich culture and history.  It is a place that, if you are lucky enough to experience it for yourself, grabs ahold of you and doesn’t let go.  From Flamenco, to the food, and obviously to the wines, there is a passion for life there that is undeniable.  The good news is that you don’t have to spring for a pricey plane ticket to experience a taste of this passion, and what better day to take advantage of these local gems than Valentine’s Day.

15 Romolo - San Francisco, CA

For over 17 years, this innovative bar and restaurant have been churning out delicious food, pouring gorgeous wines, and creating innovative cocktails.  With over 19 Sherry wines poured by the glass and a thorough list of Sherry cocktails, it's no wonder Bar Director Ian Adams and Chef Michelle Matthews were crowned overall winner at the 2015 International Copa Jerez Competition in Jerez.  Check out the Penelope cocktail with Gonzalez Byass Leonore Palo Cortado, Jerez Brandy, brut rosado cava, grenadine, lemon, cacao. Inspired by the evocative contrast of red lipstick against olive skin, it’s a great way to start your Valentine’s Day evening.

Pix Patisserie / Bar Vivant - Portland, OR

Serving up French patisserie and Spanish pintxos along side an award winning Champagne and Sherry list, you won’t want to miss their special Valentine’s Day pairing: Chocolate Truffle Heart served with Bodegas Tradición Cream VOS Sherry.

Taberna del Haro & Straight Law Bar - Brookline, MA

Passionate about authenticity and crazy for Sherry, Taberna del Haro offers 66 (and counting) different wines from Jerez.  Of those, they offer 15 by the glass which rotates monthly and Sherry flights at the bar.  Why aren’t you already there?

Mateo - Durham, NC

Their motto is, “Spanish heart, Southern soul,” and it shows.  With a section of their wine list dedicated to Sherry, Sherry cocktails, and a perfect blend of Southern ingredients and Spanish flavors, it’s a romantic marriage of both iconic regions.

Tertulia - New York, NY

Seamus Mullen's award-winning restaurant in New York's West Village celebrates Spain’s exquisite products and flavors.  With 12 Sherry wines available by the glass, it is tough to choose just one but for this holiday celebrating passion, it would be hard to find something sexier than Jamón Ibérico de Bellota and a glass of Palo Cortado.
