The Sherry Line

Sherry divides. There are lovers and haters. We blame the 70s when sherry was turned in to a sweet cream drink that comes out at Christmas. In fact ask any self-respecting sommelier/wine expert/spaniard about their favourite wines and sherry is likely to feature highly, often at the desert island disc level. They will wax lyrical about food friendliness, versatility, unique flavours to name but a few.

The fact that is so underrated is a travesty as it is one of the most unique ways of making wine in the world, relying on a series of natural occurrences that would be disastrous in other kinds of wines. You could say it breaks the rules of winemaking except for the fact that it predates the rulebook.

For one night only, Nikki Welch, creator of the WineTubeMap and author of the Pocket Guide to Wine, will create a sherry line for the Food Studio, visiting the different styles of sherry and showing how its unique production methods mean there isn't a time of day or occasion where sherry isn't the answer.

Places for this sherry tasting are £25 per person, to reserve your place email book@edinburghfoodstudio.co or call +44 (0) 131 258 0758.
