Celebramos nuestra segunda gala de los Sherry Explorers.  Al igual que el año pasado, fue una gala preciosa y lo más importante, todo el mundo lo pasó genial.

Recently, we held our second Sherry Explorers´annual gala.  Just like last year,  it was a beautiful celebration and, most importantly, everyone had a great time.collage-1-gala

La cena tuvo lugar en la Bodega Los Apóstoles de González Byass y la decoración, como veis, era preciosa.  La vajilla es copia de la que usaba la familia González-Gordon hace muchos años en Villa Vitorina.

The dinner was held at the González-Byass  “Bodega Los Apóstoles.”   The decorations, as you can see above, were incredible.  The table china was a replica of the set that was used for many years by the  González-Gordon family at the Villa Vitorina.

Todos nos hicimos fotos al llegar en el photo-call y disfrutamos de una copa de los vinos de González Byass y riquísimos entremeses. Muchos Sherry Explorers, algunos Sherry Explorers Honorarios nombrados el año pasado, alumnos del Colegio Miller, amigos, en fin, un ambiente estupendo y todos elegantísimos.

We all had our pictures taken at the photo-call, followed by some delicious appetizers which were paired with a glass, or two, of  fabulous González-Byass sherry wines. In attendance there were many Sherry Explorers, including some of last year´s Honorary Sherry Explorers, many Miller School alumni,  and many more friends.  In the end, it was a very pleasant and elegant atmosphere.

Les entregamos también una “copita” de Palo Cortado Leonor grabada con EDU, nuestra mascota y sus nombres para así brindar por este momento tan especial y divertido.

We also presented them with “a small glass” of Leonor Palo Cortado sherry wine.   The glasses were engraved with each honoree´s name and with an image of  the Sherry Explorer mascot EDU,  in order to commemorate such a special and light-hearted moment.

Después todos disfrutamos de cócteles, de la música a cargo de Sonitus Sonido e Iluminación, y del animador Salvi Virues que nos hizo mover el esqueleto a tope.  Hicimos hasta un baile de los chicos contra las chicas, ¡ganamos las chicas, claro!  pero los chicos no lo hicieron nada mal.  Gracias a todos por hacer que fuese una noche memorable.  ¡El año que viene, más!

Aquí os dejamos el video con las fotos.  Fotógrafo oficial: Borja Luque. Fotos también de: Ingrid Miller

Afterwards, we enjoyed some after-dinner cocktails, the music provided by  Sonitus Sonido e Iluminación, and the company of Salvi Virues, dance-guru, who made us all shake our bones until they rattled.  We even had a women-versus-men segment.  The women won, of course, but the men actually did pretty well.  Thank you very much to everyone for making this such a memorable evening.  Let´s do it again next year!

Attached is a video with a lot of photos.  The official photographer was  Borja Luque.  Additional photos were taken by Ingrid Miller.
