Experience the unique taste of sherry wine at one of the most famous bodegas (wineries) in the world.

Among the legendary products González Byass produces, the Soberano brandy is world-renowned, while the Lepanto brandy features a distinctive bottle designed by the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja. The sherry wines produced at González Byass are made from the best Palomino grapes, resulting in a young wine that is thoroughly mixed and ripe. The wine is aged for a year in open oak barrels, as it is one of the few wines that improve from contact with the air. A noble and old sherry can educate younger ones and the older wines are stored in aged barrels and constantly replenished to maintain their quality.

From Seville: Jerez Tour with Horse Show & Sherry Tasting

9. From Seville: Jerez Tour with Horse Show & Sherry Tasting

There are few places in Spain which can lay claim to the international recognition enjoyed by Jerez. Thanks to its wine, Jerez or sherry, the equestrian tradition, the bulls, flamenco, and motor racing, this Andalusian town's name has been known far and wide for many years. The Phoenicians arrived in the surrounding area some 3000 years ago to establish a colony called Xera, which became known as Ceret under the rule of the Romans and Sheres or Xeres when it became an Arabic fortress.  Without a doubt, the most important Al-Andalus feature is the Alcázar de Jerez situated within the walled enclosure of the Mosque, the Arab Baths, and the Olive Garden with its cisterns and fountains in perfect harmony with the Baroque palace of Villavicencio built upon the ruins of the original Islamic palace with a tower where the visitor can find the original camera obscura. The town has many interesting examples of Gothic architecture. But if you really want to get to know Jerez and its people, there is nothing better than a long walk along the Calle Larga, the central nerve and shopping center of the town. This is where the town's heart beats strongest, where the best shops are to be found alongside the pavement cafés where you can enjoy a drink and some of the delicious Jerez tapas. Then, head for the Plaza del Arenal, Jerez’s most emblematic square, the Mamelón, and the little Placita del Banco all buzzing with activity. Afterwards, go to either Plateros or Rafael Rivero Square both friendly places with plenty of pavement cafés offering delicious cuisine.

Nice ride with really nice people! The guide Manuel was very helpful, pleasing everyone. I would only take from the Jerez de la Fronteira itinerary....in addition to being very weak, the tour of the winery...the time we lost in Jerez we could have enjoyed much more in Cadiz...I was a little frustrated. That was the opinion of everyone on the tour. We were 8 people and we told this to the guide tb.

A magical day with a very professional and cultivated, attentive and very friendly guide, the visit of the cellar is very educational, the show is a must and the little tour in Cadiz instructive! A very serious and reliable company!

Marta was very knowledgeable. She engaged with us well. We had a lovely couple of hours with her and hope to see her on another tour one day.

Very nice day trip. Manuel was a guide with a lot of knowledge but also very relaxed. The group was very international.

Very good experience, our guide María was perfect.
