The production of wine in Jerez is much more than just a simple economic activity!
Sherry is much more than just a wine. Over almost three thousand years, the cultivation of the vine and the production of wine have led to the development of a whole series of cultural expressions which make Jerez a very special place. Throughout this time and with the involvement and contributions of peoples of widely diverse origins, unique methods of production and ageing have been established which have in turn led to the creation of wines which are as different as they are extraordinary. Not only that, but whole professions have been created as well as architecture, language…in fact a complete and absolutely unique culture: the culture of Jerez.
