Twitter tastings to run for International Sherry Week

Published:  09 October, 2015

A week of global events celebrating Sherry runs from November 2-8.

Thousands of restaurants, wine bars, wine shops, hotels and bodegas across the world will serve Sherry cocktails and pairing menus, and run tastings and other Sherry-themed events as part of International Sherry Week.

More than 100 events have already registered in 10 countries, including the UK.

Two Sherry Twitter tastings will allow anyone to take part and groups of wine bloggers will be sent five samples of top-notch Sherries to be tried and discussed in the #SherryTT event.

The first tasting is an introduction to Sherry, focusing on the diversity and introducing the major styles, and 15 bloggers with a strong social media presence and a good knowledge of Sherry, will take part with the sample bottles.

The second tasting will feature only palo cortado Sherries, most of them more than 30 years old. A dozen bloggers will receive samples to take part.
