we were so excited to see these "bodegas"...(distilleries). The tour guide Patricia had a cold...so we did not want to be too close to her ...needless to say we did not want to catch whatever she had. her presentation was poor...she almost whispered all the way because there was another tour in front of us. Her english was totally incomprehensible... More

We took the English tour at 2.30 and learned about the founder George Sandeman and how the wines are processed. The tour was informative . A fee of €7.50 included 3 wine tastings and there was an option to buy a tapas lunch. Overall, an enjoyable way to spend a few hours with fellow visitors.

If you know nothing about sherry, and have time for only one visit in Jerez, the Sandemans tour is a good start. Prior to the tour, arrive early and absorb the informative displays in your own time. There are two main streams of sherry - dry (fino, manzanilla, oloroso, amontillado, Palo cortado,) which are fabulous with tapas and are made... More

And well worth your visit. Right across the street from the Andalucian horse school and exhibit so you can easily do both, what fun. The Sherry tour is very educational and informative. It is an amazing process and then comes the tasting. They have several packages to choose from some of which include sherry tasting, some include tapas. Afterwords you... More

We did the package of three tastings and tapas, the tour itself was good and informative, we felt the tour guide spent just the right amount of time, she gave plenty of opportunity to ask questions if you wanted anymore information. The tastings were fino, medium and cream and the tapas were a good quality selection of cheese and ham.... More

The tour was much more than expected - very educational. Never knew there were so many kinds of sherry. An added bonus - it was very hot outside and the caves were cool.

I recommend doing the wine tasting after a visit to the riding school which is just round the corner. The actual tour is quite short and informative although delivered in a bit too much haste by the host. At the end of the tour comes the tasting of a number of sherries of varying quality depending on your tour. We... More

The visit itself was a bit too short. Maybe 15 mins or so. I thought that maybe more things could have been expalined and showed. Our guide was very nice and helpful, but English could have been a bit better (the accent). Tasting part was good. In addition to 3 wines (fino, medium and cream) we were given some chips... More
