Sanlúcar de Barrameda sherry and seafood tour
On this trip we take you to Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the second most important sherry town. It is unknown to the majority of foreign visitors and so maintains more of its local flavour then many coastal towns. It is situated at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river which is the river that runs through Seville. It looks across to the Doñana National Park and out on to the Atlantic Ocean Among the many styles of sherry wine produced here manzanilla stands out as a style of sherry made in a similar way to fino but lighter, often with a salty hint to it. The town is also known for very fine seafood; it is one of the best places for this in Spain.
On arriving in Sanlúcar we will take a walk around the beautiful old quarter with a visit to the fantastic local market before proceeding to a winery on the outskirts of the town. The winery is owned by two brothers who also own three separate vineyards; you’ll walk round one of them. You’ll get to taste a range of sherries, especially manzanillas, straight from the cask, including single vineyard wines. We can guarantee that you will be amazed at the quality of what you taste.
After the winery visit we will go to one of the fantastic seafood restaurants along the bank of the estuary where we will indulge in a meal of excellent locally caught produce, all washed down with the finest manzanilla. There will be time for a leisurely stroll along the beach before heading back to Seville.
