Escuchamos el vino, Bebimos el flamenco y Degustamos la historia. Introducción. Introduction to: “We listened to the wine, we drank the Flamenco, and we tasted the History.”


Fue una noche muy especial con unos invitados que nos enseñaron (Ángela Gallego), nos deleitaron con su música (Sergio Herrrera), y nos emocionaron con su poesía (Aurora Salvador).

It was a very special night with guests who educated us (Ángela Gallego), who delighted us with their music (Sergio Herrrera), and who moved us with their poetry (Aurora Salvador).

Todos los sentidos se involucraron.  Ángela Gallego nos habló del fascinante mundo del flamenco, en concreto de los cuatro palos que elegimos para maridar con cuatro vinos de jerez de la Bodega González Byass;  con tapas elaboradas por el equipo Discover Sherry con alimentos típicos de las cocinas Andalusí, Sefardí, Gitana y de las Americas; con la mágica guitarra de Sergio Herrera y la voz que emociona de Aurora Salvador.  No podíamos pedir más.

All of our senses were involved.  Ángela Gallego spoke to us about the fascinating world of Flamenco, specifically with regard to the four rhythms which we selected to pair with the four sherry wines from the González-Byass winery.  The tapas were prepared by the Discover Sherry Team with ingredients that were common in the Moorish, Sephardic, Gypsy, and Spanish Colonial cuisines.  They were accompanied by Sergio Herrera´s guitar, and the emotive voice of Aurora Salvador.  We couldn´t ask for more.Enhorabuena al Equipo Discover Sherry que hizo un gran trabajo con las tapas especiales.  Os dejamos aquí un pequeño vídeo e iremos publicando  la presentación de cada palo flamenco con el texto de la profesora Ángela Gallego a la que agradecemos su permiso para compartir sus notas.

Congratulations to the members of the Discover Sherry Team, who did a great job in preparing the very special tapas.  Attached is a short video with some photos.  We will later be posting details regarding the presentation of each Flamenco rhythm as they were explained to us by Professor Ángela Gallego, and  to whom we express our gratitude for allowing us to publish her original research notes.
