Discover Sherry recommends: Homenaje a William Shakespeare en Jerez / Jerez pays Homage to William Shakespeare


A special homage on the 400th anniversary of the bard’s death will take place at González Hontoria park in Jerez on the 3rd September. At the Shakespeare statue there will be a floral offering, readings of a selection of his work in both Spanish and English and a glass of Faustino González Sherry served by the Japanese venenciador, Momoko Izumi. Jerez will never forget how Shakespeare promoted Sherry (or sack as it was then) in his plays, and this is the XI annual homage to him. It would never have happened without the tireless work of the academic José Luis Jiménez. (

Both, Momoko Izumi and José Luis Jiménez are Sherry Explorers!

El 3 de septiembre se celebrará en el parque González Hontoria en Jerez, un homenaje especial con motivo del 400 aniversario  de William Shakespeare. Se realizará una ofrenda floral frente a su estatua, habrá una lectura poética tanto en inglés como en castellano y se servirá una copa de jerez de la Bodega Faustino González venenciada por Momoko Izumi.  Jerez no olvida cómo Shakespeare promocionó el jerez (o sack como se le decía entonces) en muchas de sus obras y este será el XI homenaje que se le hace.  No se podría llevar a cabo sin el incansable trabajo del académico José Luis Jiménez. .
