The Sherry Council of Jerez has published the Big Book of Sherry Wines - a book described as 'combining an educational almanac with a glossy coffee book'.

One out of three bottles of Sherry consumed in the world are sold in the United Kingdom, the largest market outside of Spain.

"The book acts as a tour guide to its readers taking them on a trip into the heart of Jerez and its 3,000 year old origins, up until the time Jerez ‘discovered’ America evolving into the Sherry we know and drink today. Newcomers will also benefit from the books explanation of the unique ways in which Sherry is made, screening the journey that the wine takes from vineyard to bottle, showcasing all varieties, presented one by one, from palest to darkest, driest to sweetest. The book demonstrates that there is a Sherry for every occasion, every taste and every drinker!

Top sherry ‘Maestros’ share their winemaking secrets and experiences, direct from the bodega. Other top specialists from the gastronomy, cultural, historical and oenological fields also contribute to the book, enabling readers to engage with the beauty of Jerez, giving an introduction to its people, customs and innovative architecture. Combined with beautiful imagery, the book shows off the new found vitality and glamour within today’s Jerez at the same time as staying grounded in its tradition."

The Big Book Of Sherry is priced at £30 and is available only from Witham Wines.

I need to check this out! Sounds like a step in the right direction for the region. Hopefully this raises some awareness of this noble wine!

BIG SHERRY BOOK Looking for help. I ordered this book from Witham Wines mid summer. Now December, NO book, no response to emails, phone not working, websites in-operative.
Anyone have any idea what happened to Witham or madaboutsherry.com.

Alternatively, is there another source to buy this book from?

Thanks,

Llyn

It doesnt look good I am afraid Llyn. As you have found out the Witham Wines page is 'closed for maintenance'.

The only other book I know of on Sherry is availabel via Amazon - Sherry Book on Amazon
