Getting our adventure started!
So Criadera is a day old now, and it’s time to start blogging for real! So we thought we’d tell you what we’ll be blogging about and what you can expect…..
Since we love sherry , tasting is going to be a BIG feature! We’ll be tasting as many different types of sherry as we can get our hands on (and brandies from the region too) and telling you what we think of them. We’ll be trying supermarket own brands, the more popular brands and – when we can get hold of them – rarer sherries that you might not get to try.
We’d love it if you shared your favourites too.
People and places
Whenever the day job allows, we spend time in Jerez de la Frontera and the sherry triangle, and have met some wonderful people from the sherry world and beyond. So we’ll share our stories and, if we can persuade them to go on the record, we’ll share their stories too!
We’ll also post pictures from the beautiful places and fantastic events we see on our travels.
A glass of sherry can elevate a tasty tapa to something heavenly. And a delicious dish can bring out the best in the sherry you pair with it. We’ll be posting our suggestions for great food pairings, photos of yummy food we’ve enjoyed with sherry and maybe even the odd recipe if we’re feeling brave.
You could share yours too, either here or on our Facebook page!
We love other wines and other places too, so from time to time we might take a detour – to a winery in the Penedes or to a brilliant show in the Edinburgh Festival. It’s good to shake things up!
So we hope you enjoy the blog and subscribe. Come and join the chat on Facebook or Twitter too. Saludos!
