A blog and review on all things Sherry. It is about tasting, enjoyment and learning more about the World’s Finest Wine. "Sherry is a thoroughbred" as Javier Hidalgo rightly puts it. Included are the amazing local Brandies and the remarkably good table wines also produced in the province of Cádiz.
Today is the 25th anniversary of the passing of the Flamenco legend José Monje Cruz, better known as El Camarón de la Isla, and large numbers of people in his native San Fernando Cádiz have turned out to pay their respects while his sisters Isabel and Remedios placed a floral tribute at his mausoleum. His funeral in 1992 attracted massive numbers of people and among those who carried his coffin draped with a gypsy flag were two other Flamenco Legends; the guitarists Paco de Lucía, sadly also gone, and Tomatito. Descansa en paz Camarón.
