Spain still continues to fox us all with a seemingly endless parade of unique grape varieties, wine styles, and regions. This is no complaint or protest however- I say bring it on! Discovery, mystery and pleasure...are you for or against?
We are incorrigible. The trip that Richard and I made to Jerez in southern Spain earlier this year was to acquaint ourselves better with our pre-established Sherry producers - not to add anybody to the roster. And yet somewhere in the cellars of Emilio Hidalgo, we realized that we could not live without these subtle, vital and venerable wines.
There are few causes to which the collective minds (and hearts) of Metrovino are so dedicated than to the promulgation of the wines of the Sherry region of Spain. Yes! Sherry, in all of its diversity and glory! And as of Wednesday, August 20, Calgary’s world of Sherry will be as bright as the Andalusian sun!
