En nuestro viaje a Shanghai, como sabéis, llevamos a Edu y algunos amigos representando a los vinos del Marco del jerez.  Los llevamos de visita por turnos, ya que pesan un poco.   La primera foto está hecha desde la ventana del Hotel Les Suites Orient, teníamos una vista espectacular aunque vimos muy poquito el sol.  La segunda es una vista desde el Shanghai World Financial Center.  A esta visita solo fue la manzanilla La Goya.

As you know, on our trip to Shanghai we took along Edu and a few of his friends representing the wines of our Sherry-producing region.  Althouth, they had to take turns in accompanying us to different places, because they were a little heavy when they were all together.   The first photo above was taken from the window of the Hotel Les Suites Orient.  We had a fantastic view even though there was very little sunshine.  The second photo was taken atop the Shanghai World Financial Center.  La Goya manzanilla was the only one that accompanied us on that day.

El último día manzanilla La Goya nos acompañó a cenar al restaurante Sabor Shanghai del chef Diego Guerrero.  El chef estaba en su restaurante en Madrid, DSTAgE y no llegaría hasta noviembre. Es un restaurante que fusiona la cocina japonesa y española, uno no sabe cuál es el menú hasta que lo sirven y así cada plato es una sorpresa y todas estupendas.  Aún no tienen vinos de jerez pero Marta Agudín, la encargada, nos dijo que los tendrán muy pronto.  Todo lo que sirvieron maridaba a la perfección con La Goya pero aunque estuvimos muy tentados,  no la abrimos y se la dejamos al chef para que se vaya familiarizando con nuestros vinos.

On our last day, La Goya Manzanilla accompanied us to have dinner at the Spanish chef Diego Guerrero´s Sabor Shanghai restaurant.   We missed Chef Guerrero since he was at his other restaurant DSTAgE, in Madrid, on that day and he would not be back until November.  Sabor Shanghai is a restaurant which serves food that is a fusion between Japanese and Spanish cuisines.   You don´t know what is on the menu until it is served to you and, in that way, each plate is a surprise.   They were all fantastic.  As of yet, the restaurant does not serve Sherry wines, but Marta Agudín, who is the manager, told us that they would be serving them very soon.  Everything that was served would have paired magnificently with  the La Goya manzanilla that we brought along.  Although we were tempted to, we did not open our bottle and we gave it to the chef so that he could begin to familiarize himself with our wines.
