Port and Sherry Tasting with Gonzalez-Byass (Harpenden)
If you think that Port is a bit old-fashioned and Sherry is yesterday’s tipple, then time to think again. Both come in all sorts of shapes and styles, are better made than ever and are becoming increasingly fashionable. Still not sure? Join us in December and prepare to be surprised.
We have teamed up with world famous producer Gonzalez-Byass for a tasting of eight different styles of Port and Sherry, from sweet to dry, from crisp and refreshing to lusciously sweet, and from young to 10 years in age. The Sherries will include examples of the lighter style Fino and Amontillado, a delicious figgy Oloroso and an ultra-sweet PX. From the highly regarded Quinta do Noval range of Ports come a white, a superb Late Bottled Vintage and an unforgettable 10-year old Tawny. Both styles make great buddies for food and we’ll try them with cheese, tapas and other food matches, discover how Port and Sherry are made and understand why these great fortified giants from Spain and Portugal are back in business. Perfect timing - just before Christmas. Book now for just £30.
Gonzalez-Byass is a specialist distributor of Sherries and other wines from around the world. Established in 1835, the company is headquartered in Jerez, in Spain, and has its UK base in St Albans.
This tasting also makes a great gift voucher idea for birthdays, anniversaries or other occasions.
