the sherry tour of London

For the month of May, the fun and festivities of the Spanish Feria are coming to London as The Sherry Tour of London takes over the capital. All across the city, bars and restaurants are gearing up to celebrate Sherry wines with a host of activities planned.

In total, more than 45 places are going to be showcasing what's so great about Sherry - including what dishes to enjoy it with. Made using centuries-old traditions, these amazing wines really capture the essence of southern Spain - its climate, its history, its culture and its people. Whether you want to enjoy them as an aperitif or with food, or would just like to learn a little more about them, this is your chance.

We've picked out some of the key menus, pairings and events taking place - you can see the full list of what's planned on The Sherry Tour of London website.
