Primera cata de Discover Sherry en San Antonio, TEXAS. (Vídeo) / Discover Sherry´s First Tasting in San Antonio, TEXAS (Video)


Todo empezó cuando Discover Sherry fue a hacer su primera cata en EE.UU., concretamente en Nueva York hace tres años invitadas por Petra Rodríguez-Conde, Presidenta de FAEUSA.   Allí conocimos a Susy Matheu, bilbaina que vive en San Antonio, Texas.  Ella hizo su juramento de Sherry Explorer en la cata que hicimos en Nueva York y seguimos en contacto.  Cuando le comenté que iba a San Antonio y que podríamos hacer una cata, le pareció genial y como se suele decir, el resto es historia.

It all began when Discover Sherry went to  conduct its first Sherry-tasting in the U.S.; specifically,  it was in New York, three years ago, where we were invited by Petra Rodríguez-Conde, President of  FAEUSA.     There, we met  Susy Matheu, a native of Bilbao who lives in San Antonio, Texas.  She was sworn-in as a Sherry Explorer at the tasting in New York and we have kept in contact ever since.  When I told her that we would be traveling to San Antonio, and suggested that we could conduct a Sherry-tasting, she thought that it was a great idea.  And, as they say, the rest is history.

Como ya os contamos en un post anterior, la exposición fotográfica de María Higuero, Vida Visible e Invisible, nos acompañó a San Antonio y estuvo expuesta en Tribeca 212 durante una semana, fue un exitazo.

As we mentioned in a previous post, the photography exhibit by María Higuero (Vida Visible e Invisible) accompanied us to San Antonio and was on display at the Tribeca 212 Restaurant for the entire week.  It enjoyed great success.https://discoversherry.com/2018/04/26/inaugurada-la-exposicion-fotografica-vida-visible-e-invisible-en-san-antonio-texas-photography-exhibit-%C2%A8vida-visible-e-invisible%C2%A8-on-display-in-san-antonio-texas/ )

Hubo lleno total en el Restaurante Tribeca 212 donde hicimos una presentación con power point de los vinos de jerez y degustamos un menú especialmente diseñado para esta ocasión y armonizado con cinco jereces de González Byass.  Me llamó la atención el interés de los asistentes por los vinos de jerez.  Muchas preguntas y muchas ganas de volver a repetir.  Les invité a que nos visiten y esperamos que así lo hagan.

It was a full house at the Tribeca 212 Restaurant where we made a PowerPoint presentation regarding Sherry wines and where we enjoyed a menu that was specially-created for the occasion.  It perfectly harmonized with the five Sherry wines that were provided by the González Byass winery.  I was very impressed by the interest that was demonstrated by the attendees regarding our Sherry wines.  There were many questions and many requests for additional servings.  I cordially invited everyone to visit us in Spain and I hope to seem them when they do so.

27 nuevos Sherry Explorers se comprometieron a seguir aprendiendo sobre los vinos de jerez, a promocionarlos y a celebrar todo con ellos.  Fue muy divertido y emocionante, y ya somos…

27 new Sherry Explorers commited themselves to continue learning about Sherry wine, to promoting them, and to continue to celebrate with them.  It was a lot of fun and very exciting.  We are now 624 Sherry Explorers strong!

Muchísimas gracias a todos los que hicisteis posible esta maravillosa experiencia.  Cumplimos con nuestra misión: conseguir nuevos enamorados del Vino de Jerez y ahora esperamos vuestra visita.  Esperamos que os guste el vídeo que hemos preparado con las fotos que se tomaron.

Thank you to everyone who made this marvelous experience become a reality.  We have accomplished our mission:  we have created new Sherry-wine lovers and we now await your visit to Spain.  We hope that you enjoy the attached video that includes some of the photos that were taken that wonderful evening.
