This year, International Sherry Week takes place from the Monday 2nd until Sunday 8th November. This annual festival brings together sherry-lovers to celebrate the history and diversity of this exciting wine.
Davy’s has a long history of shipping fine sherries to the UK and stocks a range of sherries, from bone dry, crisp manzanilla and fino, right through to medium cream and sweet Pedro Ximenez. We will again be marking Sherry Week with a number of events, both on and offline. See below for what we have planned.
