Our latest trip to Spain only enhanced our love for Sherry, so it is good to see Ballymaloe House is hosting a Sherry tasting next week. If you’re not too far away, it will be well worth making the trip. It is not too often you’ll have the opportunity to taste so many different styles in one evening.
