Sherry Revelations with the Wine Gang

Wine lovers in the UK are spoilt - it is official! - especially at this time of year. They are spoilt for choice when it comes to wine fairs, and two of the best are organised by The Wine Gang and the Three Wine Men – both of which we are delighted to say have been featuring Sherry this year.

In November we attended two The Wine Gang events – one in London and one in Edinburgh – and on both occasions ‘felt the love’ in the room for Sherry. The five wine writers behind The Wine Gang all know and love Sherry but it is always a real revelation for wine drinkers who don’t know Sherry to have the opportunity to taste the ‘Sherry rainbow’. As Sherry buffs know, there is a staggering array of styles but for the uninitiated at consumer wine shows it can be a bit of a surprise. So, it is always a real treat to share our knowledge and to pass on the secrets behind one of the best value wines in the world.

Surprisingly, in Edinburgh the scots had a real thirst for anything PX. I mean, we know how good it is, especially blended in cream Sherries, but it is often this style of Sherry that is (unjustly!) overlooked. So to have such an enthusiastic crowd putting their glasses out for more cream and PX Sherry was great. Needless to say they all received endless food pairing tips for the celebratory season ahead, including PX poured over vanilla ice-cream, of course!

This weekend (4-5 December) we are off to see the 1800-strong crowd at the Three Wine Men. The three guys in question are: Oz Clarke, Olly Smith and Tim Atkin – who all know a thing or two about Sherry (!) and are big fans. We shall post their feedback on our Sherry wine selection here next week. In the meantime take a look at the pictures from the London show with The Wine Gang.

All tickets for the events sold out in advance, but don’t worry, we will be attending more next year and for those of you following us on this blog, you’ll be the first to know!
