Sherry is a fortified wine that's complex in its construction but both delicious on its own and incredibly useful in cocktails. In this seminar, we’ll cover the basic types and tastes of sherry (there are many) as well as the production parameters and little-known secrets of this fortified wine. We’ll examine biological and oxidative aging practices including the manifestations of terroir between fino and manzanilla sherries, which are otherwise the same thing. We’ll also take a deeper look at the solera system and see not only how the math works, but how it is used (and abused) in other alcoholic beverages. Attendees will leave with an understanding of all types of sherry they will see on store shelves around the world and hopefully a new love for this wonderful wine. Alec Coyler from Cava Restaurant will also lead us through a tasting of the sherries available on the local market.
