Though I have enjoyed sherry for years, it is more recent that I have deeply delved into the realm of sherry. This includes my travel to the Sherry Triangle, visiting cities including Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. My journey was part of a journalist trip, sponsored by the Sherry Council of America, and I was accompanied by five other writers from across the country. We visited nine sherry bodegas, tasting a wide and diverse variety of sherries, both with and without food.
I have recently written over a dozen articles about sherry and my trip, and felt it would be very helpful to my readers to compile the links to these posts in a single place. This post will be that repository, and as such will be constantly updated when I write another sherry article. Some of these articles were written before my trip, and others afterwards.
I hope you enjoy.
