4. Take the train to El Puerto de Santa Maria, one of the 3 towns of the Sherry triangle.

Here was the last fresh water stop for the likes of Christopher Columbus en route to the ocean blue. Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia is alongside this famous ocean channel. Here the father makes the Sherry, the mother markets it and the daughter tells you all about it. A tasting of 6 Sherries, 2 Brandies with accompanied snacks

5. Whilst in El Puerto, dine at Aponiente, regarded …

Aged in American oak casks through the traditional solera method in Lustau's wineries in El Puerto de Santa María, a seaside town situated in the Sherry triangle. The colour in this sherry is pale yellow. On the nose, the notes are fresh, vibrant, reminsicent of yeast, and leading to a dry and mouthwatering palate. Serve cold as a deliciously refreshing accompaniment to green olives and almonds on a hot day.

…and Paraguay and consists of three main viticulture areas: Cafayate, Santa María and Colomé. In the valleys, olives, maize, and tobacco dominate the landscape, yet vineyards appear once the elevation produces cooler nights to offset the brutal daily heat. And eventually, these mountainous regions hosts some of the highest vineyards in the world, ranging from 5,000 to 6,500 feet above sea level - similar to some of the highest vineyards in Colorado . However, for the most extreme, …

Cantina Capponi Mescite

In Florence, between via de' Bardi and the Santa Maria in Soprarno square there is, barely noticeable in the wall, a little doored niche. Above it a sign " Cantina Capponi". This is one of several surviving street wine bars - ‘ buche da vino' (wine holes).

"The boom in such wine counters began in the seventeenth century, when Florence's commercial fortunes had gone into decline. Such outlets allowed families who owned …

Fino course will consist of a Fino from el Puerto de Santa Maria, something rather scarce in this market, next to a Fino en Rama (unfiltered) from the same little town - something scarcer still. The Amontillado Los Arcos will be juxtaposed with the Rare Amontillado Almacenista Escuadrilla, illustrating the effect of the long, careful aging. Oloroso Don Nuño will be tasted with the Oloroso Emperatriz Eugenia, a supple and regal oloroso that everyone adores. It will finish …

…Gutierrez Colosía , the very fine producer in El Puerto de Santa María. The average age of these wines is at least 40 years and the wine is a complexly concentrated elegant thing of finesse and beauty.

We drank this wine with home-cooking style Japanese food. It was great with everything, but drinking it with these fried oysters with miso and seaweed was among the most thrilling and delicious pairings I experienced all year. Savory briny sweet complex harmony.

I ate dinner with …

…of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María , and Sanlúcarde Barrameda . Beside the place of origin, the wine also has to be produced in a specific manner to be considered Sherry. Real Sherry can be such a sublime wine, especially its aged forms.

Three of the wines on Tapeo's list are from the Alvear winery, which is located in the D.O. of Montilla-Moriles , and thus are not legally Sherry. Just think of it as a sparkling wine made outside of …

…was 74 degrees. Other records were set in San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Maria, where it was an unbelievable 83 degrees. The flowering trees in Oakland (magnolias, plums) are in full bloom. We're in Day Three of a high fire danger, Red Flag warning in the East Bay and North Bay hills.

…towns making up the ‘sherry triangle' is indeed the first such release in history.

The Puerto de Santa Maria has arguably the greatest complexity of the three, there are strong mineral nuances, marzipan and of course a saline quality which ‘cuts to the quick' to coin a popular phrase. A purist's wine to be sure but anyone with an inquisitive nature should be reaching for a bottle

Jerez, Sevilla, Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa María, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, as part of a press trip . What a superb journey, with incredible food, wines and people. It was my favorite trip of the year, and I have so many find memories of the region. From the Arabic baths to flamenco dancing, from baby eels to sherry (lots of sherry). Plus, it was very educational, and my passion for sherry grew even greater. I highly recommend that you visit this region of Spain!
