Description

THIS LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED book casts an expert and entertainingly readable eye over an old favourite – out of fashion in recent years, but, in the opinion of those in the know, set to make a magnificent comeback.

Made in a unique way, matured in cellars dating back to the age of the Conquistadores, and bursting with a panoply of sun-drenched flavours, Sherry has – due to a succession of scandals and bad luck during the 1970s – been maligned and misunderstood. But the Sherry scene is set for seismic change. With a series of new styles, new vineyards and a dynamic new crop of cellar masters, this wine is creating a revolution in the world’s restaurants that can’t be ignored. Ben Howkins, in colourful words and equally evocative pictures, delves deep into Sherry’s fascinating story and reveals why it is set to come back into our lives with a magnificent flourish!

"With over 3,000 years of history behind it, the future of Sherry lies in its past. Sommeliers admire it for its many varieties and Ben Howkins’ book will tell you why." - Steven Spurrier

The Producer

Academie du Vin Library

Our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time. Our new titles are, we believe, destined to become the classics of the future: easy to read, easy on the eye, and all with something new and important to say.

We like to think of ourselves not just as publishers and booksellers, but as a community of wine lovers, united by a passion for learning more about what makes the wine world so special. We hope you will join us. Happy reading!
