Zoom Sherry Tasting

Zoom Sherry Tasting

Why book your Sherry Tasting with me…

I LOVE Sherry! Always have done and always will. It has to be one of the most fascinating wines in the world. It’s not just Sherry wine that captures your senses but also the associated history, the culture, the food and the music. I live on the edge of the Sherry triangle and Sherry is part of my daily life. It’s such a fun wine and it’s always been a pleasure to share my passion ever since I qualified as a Sherry Educator in October 2011.

How will your Sherry Fiesta work?

All Sherry tastings will have a corresponding tasting kit of 6 x 50ml samples available to ship directly to you if you are in the UK.

You will need 6 x glasses per person and optional food pairing.

I will guide you through a tasting of the 6 different styles of Sherry with names you are probably familiar with such as Manzanilla, Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream (yes, even cream is fab!) and Pedro Ximenez, better known as PX.

All of my tastings will be hosted via Zoom at a pre-arranged time. You will have the option of booking a private tasting exclusively for your group or joining others on a fixed date.

I will ship the Sherry to you as a tasting kit of 6 x 50mls Sherry samples with 7 days notice.

Each session is approximately 1.5 hours.

What people have said about Annie B’s Zoom Sherry Tastings

What a great evening!! – and you are right – one must always keep on learning – albeit with pleasure… – many thanks for the excellent tutorial, and the sherries to go with it – we had a super time – the joyous moment being the orange slice in cream sherry – never tasted before, will be done many, many times in the future…! – or maybe the blue cheese with PX…

Phil & Lindy, Pulborough, Dec 2020

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed the educational tasting last night. What a difference when sherry is paired with the correct food, you have changed our perception.

Stewart Barr, Motherwell, Dec 2020

Annie B’s sherry talk, presentation and “workshop” was an epiphany.  Away with Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, give me Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream and Pedro Ximenez (how mellifluous they sound).  I had no idea how varied and delicious sherry can be. Annie, gently and masterfully took us on a journey of discovery about sherry, through the triangle of sherry towns, describing the history and process of production and showed the versatility of sherry as an accompaniment to a variety of foods.  It was all completely satisfying.
I will now definitely read more by the great 19th century Spanish novelist Galdos  having now read his encomium of sherry in his book Cadiz:
Si Dios no hubiese hecho a Jerez, cuán imperfecta serìa su obra!
Stephen Navin, Wallingford, Nov 2020
Who knew you could drink sherry throughout a meal, pairing different varieties with each course – we do now thanks to Annie B’s fabulous ‘Zoom sherry tasting class’.  We were transported to the sherry triangle in southern Spain from our sofas – certainly a welcome change within our restricted pandemic world right now, but a valuable experience at any time.  From the moment the 6 sherry samples arrived to preparing (or buying in) a few complimenting tapas dishes recommended by Annie, to the informative and fascinating class itself, we loved it all.  As soon as the world opens up and we can get to the province of Cadiz in person, we look forward to signing up for a tour in person and a cookery course – if Annie’s delicious sticky orange, almond and lemon cake is anything to go by I’m sure that will be a culinary joy.

“Your talk gave us a much greater understanding of Sherry and the joys of drinking it! Thank you so much, it was a fascinating evening and we loved it.”
Mandy & Anthony Finn

“Thank you so much organizing this event. The guests at my place had an absolute blast and learned lots. It was great fun – definitely our most successful Zoom event so far thanks to Fiona. She brought an amazing sherry expert, Annie B., who not only knows her stuff but also understands how to use Zoom as a teaching tool. And, best of all, our Charity Fund has a few more euros in it today thanks to Annie asking that the participant fees be a gift to charity.”
