Event Details

Join us for an exquisite Sherry tasting dinner featuring a specially designed menu by Chef Iñaki, paired with select wines from the prestigious Lustau winery. This culinary journey will highlight the unique flavors of one of Spain’s most iconic wine regions.

This is a ticketed event at Sketches of Spain, you can find your tickets here.

Your evening begins with a delightful welcome cocktail, the “Sherry Amore,” a creative twist on the classic Aperol spritz from Sketches of Spain, setting the stage for a memorable dining experience. Enjoy dishes such as the refreshing Salmorejo, a chilled tomato soup from Andalusia, the savory Montado de lomo, a pork loin sandwich, the richly flavored Paella de secreto, featuring a special pork cut, and the sweet Peras al vino, pears poached in wine. Each dish is crafted to complement the evening’s Sherry selections.

The wine journey starts with Manzanilla Papirusa, aged under a veil of yeast called “flor” in the cool, humid air of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Its bright, golden reflections and sea breeze scents lead to a crisp, sea salt-tinged palate.

Next, experience Amontillado Los Arcos, which combines aging under flor and exposure to oxygen, creating a rich and complex profile.

You’ll then delight in Palo Cortado Peninsula, an exceptional Sherry that marries the delicacy of Amontillado with the richness of Oloroso. This wine, nutty and dry, features nuances of vanilla, mocha, and dark chocolate for a long, elegant finish.

Conclude with Compass Box Spaniard blended, a sophisticated expression reflecting the finesse and depth of traditional Sherry, perfect for closing a splendid evening.

This guided dinner is not just a meal, but an exploration into the heart of Spanish winemaking heritage, carefully curated to enhance each nuanced flavor of Lustau’s celebrated Sherries.
