El Consejo Regulador amplía su extensa red de embajadores de los vinos de Jerez en España y Latinoamérica

Hace ya 14 años que el Consejo Regulador del Jerez-Xeres-Sherry creó el curso de ´Formador Homologado del Vino de Jerez ´.   En términos prácticos, los formadores actúan como una extensión del Aula de Formación del Vino de Jerez en los mercados de destino, para convertirse así en embajadores de los mismos.

La XIV edición de este curso, celebrado los pasados 9, 10 y 11 de marzo, ha estado compuesto por 26 avanzados profesionales de la restauración, sumilleres, educadores y periodistas procedentes de Venezuela, Colombia, Brasil y España.

Es un intenso programa formativo en torno a la enología del Marco que incluye seminarios, catas magistrales y visitas a bodegas y viñas,  puntos clave para la obtención del prestigioso título de Formador Homologado del Vino de Jerez, que acredita a los asistentes como educadores y representantes de los Vinos de Jerez en España y todo el mundo.

Ya somos más de 500 Formadores Homologados en todo el mundo.

De entre los momentos más apreciados por los asistentes este año, destacan la visita a la viña, donde se les hace unas demostraciones en vivo de injerto y poda tradicional jerezana, impartida magistralmente por José Manuel Arana, la majestuosa cata de Beltrán Domecq de vinos VOS y  VORS que muestra grandes joyas de las sacristías de las bodegas del Marco y la lección de armonías y maridajes con la cocina del mundo que el periodista José Ferrer impartió a los alumnos el último día.

A los nuevos Formadores: ¡Bienvenidos al Club!

The Regulatory Council adds to its extensive network of Sherry wine Ambassadors in Spain and in Latin America                                                                        

It has been 14 years since the Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Regulatory Council created the Certified Sherry-Wine Educator course.  In practical terms, the Educators act as an extension of the Sherry Wine Education Training Center in distant markets, in order to convert themselves into ambassadors of the Sherry wines.

The XIVth convocation of this course, held on the past 9th, 10th, and 11th of March, was comprised of 26 leading professionals in the restaurant industry, sommeliers, educators, and journalists that were from Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, and Spain.

It is an intensive training program which focuses on the enology of the Sherry production zone.  It  includes seminars, master wine tasting sessions, and visits to wineries and vineyards. These are all key elements needed to obtain the prestigious title of Certified Sherry-Wine Educator, which recognizes that the attendees have been transformed into educators and representatives of Sherry wines, both in Spain and in the rest of the world.

We  are now more than 500 Sherry Wine Educators all over the world.

Among the most memorable moments for this year´s attendees was the visit to the vineyards.  There, they were witnesses to several live demonstrations of the grafting and pruning methods peculiar to the Jerez region, masterfully presented by José Manuel Arana.  Another memorable moment was the majestic wine-tasting, presented by Beltrán Domecq, of VOS and VORS Sherry wines and which featured these “crown jewels” from the sacristies of several wineries within the Sherry production zone.  And finally, equally as memorable was the lesson on harmonizing and pairing with the various cuisines of the world, which journalist José Ferrer presented to the students on their last day of the course.

To all of the new Educators:  Welcome to the Club!
