Jerez: 1.5-Hour Sherry Winery and Tasting Tour

1. Jerez: 1.5-Hour Sherry Winery and Tasting Tour

Experience the unique taste of sherry wine at one of the most famous bodegas (wineries) in the world. Located in the sherry capital of Jerez de la Frontera and globally recognized for its brandies and fortified wines, González Byass has a fascinating history that includes the construction of the great Tío Pepe bodega in 1963. Make your way to the bodega in the fertile green hills, where the poignant music and dance of the flamenco was born. Among the legendary products González Byass produces, the Soberano brandy is world-renowned, while the Lepanto brandy features a distinctive bottle designed by the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja. The sherry wines produced at González Byass are made from the best Palomino grapes, resulting in a young wine that is thoroughly mixed and ripe. The wine is aged for a year in open oak barrels, as it is one of the few wines that improve from contact with the air. A noble and old sherry can educate younger ones and the older wines are stored in aged barrels and constantly replenished to maintain their quality. In 2014, González Byass was awarded the "Best Visitor Centre" in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Awards. .

Our guide was Marta, she was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the varieties of sherry. We loved that Marta was flexible about getting started with the tour, because a wonderful choir was just beginning to sing at our meeting place. We had one sherry & 1 tapa at each of 3 authentic tapas bars. The last bar had a Flamenco show, luckily for us, 10 minutes after we arrived.

Excellent tour, very interesting and insightful. Our guide Marta was extremely knowledgeable and we loved her passionate explanations around backgrounds and details. Would totally recommend this tour!

Our tour was excellent, its is a new experience for us, we learned a lot about all the delicious products that they have and the tour guide was a very prepare with a lot of experience. A unique tour.
