Ever wanted know about Sherry? No? Think again!

Despite being much loved on Spanish shores, Sherry has a somewhat different image here – but is attracting new fans.  Woefully underappreciated, we are going to convince you to drink more of this superb fortified wine.  In fact, you might even like it!

We will be holding “Sherry and Tapas Tasting Evening”.  We’ll be pairing 5 magnificent Sherries with some delicious authentic Spanish cuisine – olives, calamares, pan con tomate, tortilla, paella and a sweet surprise!

What’s more, we have the most knowledgeable of guests to enlighten you on this excellent Andalusian tipple.  Bruce Evans, proprietor of Grape & Grain Wine Merchants in Crediton, has been in the Wine trade for almost 20 years – spending time as both a sommelier and retailer.  You can follow Bruce on twitter, @lovelywines

He holds a Wine Diploma and has travelled extensively throughout a vast number of wine regions – including Sanlucar de Barremada in the Spanish province of Cadiz, the officially designated Sherry producing region.  Bruce opened Grape & Grain Wine Merchants in November 2012 with the aim of showcasing small producers and offering an impressive and interesting selection of wine.

At £18.50 per person, it represents excellent value and a fabulous night out – and you’ll learn everything you ever wanted to know about Sherry, and some things that you didn’t!
