The World’s Biggest Sherry Party is here!

In our fast-changing world, towns, cities or regions can be locked down from one day to the next. Now in its 7th year, Sherry Week has always offered an array of events to cater for people both at home and at the bar. This year, more virtual events than ever will be presented by Sherry producers, wine educators, mixologists and restaurants to lift the spirits of Sherry lovers worldwide. Just make sure you’re well stocked up with Sherry, and let’s get the party started!

Over 1000 events are taking place in 28 countries from Brazil to the USA, via Norway and New Zealand, with the busiest agendas in Spain (naturally) and the UK. Simply search the world Sherry map for your nearest event - you can search by city, country, type of event and date.  

In this unprecedented year, the D.O. of Jerez-Xérès-Sherry and Manzanilla, together with dedicated importers, restaurateurs and wine professionals, will take you on a gastronomic Sherry journey – travel around the world and experience Sherry and local cuisine from the comfort of your own abode. Anyone can watch these events for free, preferably with a glass of Sherry in hand: audience interaction is definitely encouraged!

Learn about a different type of Sherry every weekday at Sherry O’clock: Manzanilla Monday, Amontillado Tuesday, Palo Cortado Wednesday, Cream Thursday, Fino Friday. Three Sherry specialists – producers, sommeliers and educators (including Silvia Flores, daughter of the legendary Master Blender Antonio, and renowned wine producer Peter Sisseck) – will wax lyrical each weekday. 2 - 6 November, 19:00 CET.  Follow our account on Instagram @sherrywinesjerez
