Sherryfest is one of the world’s largest and most prominent sherry events, celebrating all aspects of this magnificent Spanish wine. Created by Peter Liem, author of Sherry, Manzanilla & Montilla, and Rosemary Gray, director of RS Productions NYC, Sherryfest was launched in 2012, featuring an array of tasting events, seminars and sherry dinners with bodega representatives.

Sherryfest NYC

The first Sherryfest, held in October of 2012 in New York, was the largest sherry event to ever take place outside of Spain. It included 36 in-store tastings, four educational seminars, eight producer dinner events, and a grand sherry tasting with 20 sherry houses presenting over 100 sherries for an audience of over 400 people, including top industry professionals, press and consumers. This was repeated on an even larger scale in October of 2013, reflecting the growing excitement surrounding sherry in New York City.

Sherryfest West

Our first West Coast event took place in March of 2013, in Portland, Oregon. This week-long celebration of sherry was co-sponsored by Bar Vivant and Galaxy Wine Company, and featured an extensive array of sherry tastings, with wines from 13 different sherry bodegas. In addition, Sherryfest West featured the public American debut of several new sherries, including Valdespino’s Deliciosa En Rama and the wines of Alexander Jules.

In June of 2014, we hosted Sherryfest West in San Francisco, featuring sherry dinners at Central Kitchen, Bar Agricole, Trou Normand and St. Vincent, as well as a series of sherry seminars at 18 Reasons and a Grand Tasting with 21 participating sherry producers.

Sherryfest Toronto

We took Sherryfest to Toronto in October of 2013, partnering with Derek Kranenborg to host a series of sherry tastings and dinners at various venues around the city. Ten different sherry bodegas participated in what was Canada’s largest sherry event to date, and Sherryfest’s first international venture.
