Sin duda fue una experiencia preciosa e inolvidable. 28 Sherry Explorers y amigos pasamos una tarde vendimiando, pisando la uva, separando los hollejos y las pepitas y echando el mosto en la bota.  Para los incansables exploradores de nuestros vinos de Jerez el poder cortar la uva con nuestras propias manos y luego pisarla con nuestros propios pies fue una sensación maravillosa.  

It was, without a doubt, a beautiful and unforgettable experience.  28 Sherry Explorers and friends spent an evening harvesting, stomping grapes, separating the grape skins  from the seeds, and pouring the resulting grape-must into the barrel.  For these tireless explorers of our Sherry Wines, the experience of harvesting the grapes with their own hands, and crushing them with their bare feet, was marvelous  for all of their senses.
