BET YOU DIDN'T KNOWDid you know that Columbus stocked up on sherry before starting his voyage to the new world? Or that another famous explorer, Magellan, spent more on sherry than weapons when he prepared to sail around the world in 1519? These facts attest to the classical popularity of sherry, which you'll be enjoying at Tapavino, one of the top sherry bars in Sydney. This fortified Spanish white wine has a long, delightful history, which goes back thousands of years.
Sherry is made from white grapes grown near the town of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. Winemaking in this region was introduced by the Phoenicians. For more than 1,000 years sherry has been produced in the region. We'd say in all that time the local vintners have mastered the art of sherry production, but you can taste for yourself!
Today, many wine experts regard sherry as an under-appreciated wine. This is partially because wines from different years are blended before bottling, so no sherry carries a specific year. But this under-appreciation doesn't have to be. You'll be something of an expert after this masterclass with one of Sydney's sherry masters. So tip back a glass and enjoy!
