Add To Plan

Set in the beautiful Andalusian plain, Jérez is the sherry capital of the world. In fact, excellent wine and sherry have been made here for almost three millennia, ever since the Phoenicians arrived in the 7th century BC with their vines and wine-making skills.

The Moors held Jérez for almost 400 years until Alfonso of Castile retook it in 1264. The city is noted for its superb architecture and you'll drive past some of the city's magnificent mansions and churches such as the splendid Collegiate Church of San Salvador built between the 16th and 18th centuries. Enjoy a walk through the old quarter where you can view the exterior of the elegant Church of San Dionisio. Jérez's 12th century Alcázar is part of the massive walled enclosure that was once the residence of the Caliph of Seville. You'll visit one of the city's 36 bodegas, or cellars, devoted to the making and selling of sherry. You'll see how the wine is classified and the method used to blend old wine and new. Of course, there will be an opportunity for tasting.

Please note: Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, as this tour includes approximately 1½ hours of walking and/or standing in the wine seller.
