Jerez: 1.5-Hour Sherry Winery and Tasting Tour

1. Jerez: 1.5-Hour Sherry Winery and Tasting Tour

Experience the unique taste of sherry wine at one of the most famous bodegas (wineries) in the world. Located in the sherry capital of Jerez de la Frontera and globally recognized for its brandies and fortified wines, González Byass has a fascinating history that includes the construction of the great Tío Pepe bodega in 1963. Make your way to the bodega in the fertile green hills, where the poignant music and dance of the flamenco was born. 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. In 2014, González Byass was awarded the "Best Visitor Centre" in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Awards. .

The White Towns of Andalusia: Private Day Trip from Cádiz

2. The White Towns of Andalusia: Private Day Trip from Cádiz

The White Towns of Andalusia are a series of villages in southern Spain located mostly within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. All of the villages are characterized by their whitewashed houses with red or brown tiled roofs. This private 8-hour tour begins with hotel pick-up in Cádiz. It is said that the houses are painted white to ward off the intense summer heat that affects the region. Historically, the darkest houses and those with poor air circulation had to be whitewashed by painters who had survived the bubonic plague. Lime mixed with water produces heat that kills microorganism. As a result, people living in villages whose houses were whitewashed escaped more diseases than those who did not. Although times have changed, the tradition is still alive and houses continued to be whitewashed as needed.

From Seville: Jerez Tour with Horse Show & Sherry Tasting

6. 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.
