Sherryfest floods New York with fino

sherryfestSherryfest, a series of tastings and events lasting four days, is set to capture the attention of wine geeks in New York. I had fun writing a story about the festivities and the state of sherry in America today for the new magazine over at Check it out! They haven’t enabled comments over there so if you have anything to add, hit the comments here. Are you a fan of sherry?

Here’s a link to the list of activities, including free tastings at 30 wine shops on Saturday.

  1. I have a bottle (partially filled) of Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry in a Bristol Blue Bottle. It has 17.5% alcohol and contains sulfites. It has to be at least 15 years old. I just don’t get sherry. There must be something to it though.

  2. One comment, and from someone who doesn’t like sherry? Hopefully that isn’t reflective of the general interest in sherry “out there” .. Although a niche product and a hand-sell in most restaurants, I think sherry deserves all the attention it is getting. And it is getting more and more attention in restaurants and from consumers alike. Especially the dry-styles. It’s so versatile, great value, love it! I am travelling from Toronto to participate in Sherryfest!

  3. Hi Robin, Too bad you aren’t in NYC this weekend to try some other styles of sherry!

    Derek – Selling 350 tickets to a consumer event *on a Monday* during the day is indicative of something! Hope to see you among the crowds.
