Advanced Sherry certificate
Sherry is one of my great loves. In my early days of working in the wine trade in the UK I was lucky enough to work with John Radford. John was an authority on Sherry and indeed Spanish wines generally. John passed on some of his Sherry wisdom and this was reinforced by WSET and MW studies.
Recently, in preparation for a long-planned visit to Jerez I spent six happy hours studying for the Advanced course of Jerez-Xérés-Sherry y Manzanilla Sanlúcar de Barrameda DO. The course is run by the Consejo Regulador through their Sherry Academy.
Being an on-line course, I didn’t get to taste any sherries but I made up when I passed the final exam.
