Fiestas de la Vendimia 2014 launch
This week the Alcadesa (mayoress) of Jerez launched the programme for the Fiestas de la Vendimia 2014 which will take place from 9 to 14 September. This is always an important celebration for the city, but this year’s harvest festival will be on a whole different scale as it’s a key event in Jerez’s European City of Wine 2014 calendar.
The programme looks to be packed with a mix of the usual events such as catas magistrales in the Alcazar, doors open days at many bodegas and the ceremonial grape pressing at the cathedral, plus lots of new things to try, including a venencia workshop organised by Spirit Sherry. That one’s definitely on my list!
