The Jerez wine festival is an opportunity to discover everything about sherry. Jerez de la Frontera is the hub of International Sherry Week in which towns and cities on every continent take part.
During International Sherry Week, you will be able to sample the many sherries produced in the 'Sherry Triangle', visit vineyards and learn how sherry is made. A visit to one of the bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera is almost obligatory.
It is not just sherry that is highlighted at the Jerez wine festival. You can also take part in cooking masterclasses and food and wine pairing exhibitions and find out the many culinary uses of sherry and sherry vinegar.
Here's a taste of some of the events happening during the festival:

International Sherry Week brings together thousands of lovers of Sherry wine in a multitude of events that take place simultaneously in more than 30 countries every year.
International Sherry Week is the world's largest celebration of the wines of southern Spain, and brings these exquisite and incredibly versatile wines to homes, bars, restaurants and wine shops on four continents during the first weeks of November.
While sherry is a big draw for visitors to Jerez, there's lots to see and do in the city. Read our Jerez de la Frontera guide to discover what to see and do here.
Even if you visit Jerez de la Frontera outside of International Sherry Week, you can still experience the city's sherry culture.
