The mighty Iberian pig is somewhat of an icon in Spain, with Jamón being the kingpin of the tapas scene across the nation and beyond. This one-day tour explores the Jamón Ibérico journey from farm to table, giving you a fascinating insight and appreciation.
This day trip from Seville journeys out into the rolling dehesas to the heart of Jamón Ibérico land.
You will first pay a visit to a ‘secadero de jamón’ (jamón drying kiln) where an expert will walk you through the maturing and drying process, following which, you will enjoy a tasting of jamón with your first Sherry of the day.
You’ll then be driven to a stunning private estate where the gentleman-farmer owner will introduce his pigs and give an exclusive tour of his farm to explain how these noble animals are reared.
Afterwards you’ll move up to the main house for a light lunch of traditional Andalucian food and Sherry, to relax and take in the beautiful views before finally heading back to Seville.
Your host on this tour is my good friend Gerry who has lived in Andalucia for over 15 years, working in the luxury travel industry. Gerry is a horsewoman with a deep passion for her adoptive land.
