Today was a day of two ends of the Sherry spectrum, and included visits to both Harveys (one of the largest producers) and Tradicion (one of the smallest). I'll be posting my tasting notes and more details in the coming days, but for now I thought that a short video, shot at Harveys, would provide a nice sense of Jerez itself. Check it out below:

Yesterday was my first day in Spain for the weeklong tasting tour of Jerez, sponsored by the Sherry Council, that I wrote about last week. And, as expected, it has been full of eye-opening, palate-awakening moments that have, even just 24 hours into the trip, changed my perception of Sherry itself and the ways in which it can--and brilliantly does--enhance a meal.
