This week Jerez de la Frontera, or, commonly, Jerez, is celebrating its traditional Horse Fair or Feria del Caballo, the most important event of the year, along with the Moto GP, that also took place last weekend.
This fair has existed since Medieval Ages, where dealers bought and sold livestock, a tradition that is still ongoing in Jerez during this week. It is the perfect opportunity to meet with friends, dress up in the local attire and enjoy the friendly atmosphere as it is the city’s festival.
One of Jerez most known features, widely drunk at the Feria, is Sherry, a fortified wine made of white grapes. Wine has been produced in the region for more than 3,000 years and it’s known worldwide and is very popular in the United Kingdom. There are 6 different types of Sherry, with different contents in sugar and different fortification. All of them are protected by the Regulatory Council of Sherry Wine.
The city also offers its visitors the chance of visiting different wine cellars, where you will get to sample the wine and, why not, celebrate your event in an unrivalled surrounding where your guests will be amazed.
