Sherry Masterclass

Past event

Sherry comes to Merricks!

We’re brightening up winter by letting in the Andalusian sun, its deep-blue skies, dazzling white-chalk soils & cool, calm bodegas.

Please join us for a Sherry masterclass on Thursday, 17th August from 6-8pm.

Don’t worry if you know nothing about the subject; this is a voyage of discovery where all you need is an open mind & the merest suspicion that Sherry is one of the planet’s most underratedly wonderful vinous treasures!

Hispanophile wine guru Ed Merrison (aka @vininspo.wine) will lead this visually driven discussion of Spain’s most precious wine.

With a tasting of three distinct brackets (see below), we’ll look at the historical, cultural & geographical factors that shape the way these unique wines are grown in the vineyard & nurtured in the cellar.

Tapas will be provided by our kitchen & we’ll have the fire blazing for what promises to be an evening of delicious Iberian escapism.

Tickets are all inclusive at $65 each & limited to 24 attendees.
