What to Expect

When people think of Spanish wines they think of big, bold reds from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. But Spain’s most interesting contribution to the wine world is perhaps neither of these, but rather, sherry. Dry and nutty manzanilla and fino wines make the perfect aperitif, sweet and sticky Pedro Ximénez wines make a welcome tipple after dinner. And with various styles of sherry wine ranging from sweet to dry, there is the perfect wine for every occasion in between, too.

Join certified Spanish wine scholar and wine educator Nika from her home in Barcelona where she will lead you on an exploration of the history and culture behind Spain’s most understood wine, sherry. You’ll learn what sherry really is, how we enjoy it today in Spain, what to pair it with and how to make two fun sherry cocktails! And with sherry wines becoming increasingly available outside of Spain, we’ll make sure you know where to find it too, so you can bring a bit of Spain to your home no matter where you are in the world.

This experience is part of the Sunday Sabor series in partnership with Atlas Obscura. Atlas Obscura’s mission is to inspire wonder and curiosity about the incredible world we all share. They started this series, and their other online experiences, because of our current need, more than ever, to stay connected—not only to our sense of wonder, but to each other.
