Jerez de la Frontera is an amazing city situated in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, in the valley of the Guadalquivir River. Belonging to the province of Cádiz, this city is one of southern Spain’s most beautiful destinations. Steeped in horse fairs, flamenco and sherry, it’s a must-visit city if you’re travelling around Andalusia.
Jerez’s one cultural emblem is sherry. The surrounding countryside is the only place on earth where the drink is made from palomino grapes that grow in the loose, chalky soil. To learn about Jerez’s centuries-old association with sherry, take a tour of the cellars (bodegas) of the city’s most famous brand, Tio Pepe.
