Con un aforo completo, los asistentes aprendieron y disfrutaron de la reunión de los Sherry Explorers del pasado 22 de febrero.

With a full house, attendees learned a lot and enjoyed themselves, at the Sherry Explorers´meeting  which was held this past 22nd of February.Comenzamos con el juramento de once invitados que se suman ya al grupo de Sherry Explorers por el mundo mundial.  Nada más hacer el juramento y brindar, ya se sentían genial, les había cambiado la vida!!!

We began with the swearing-in of eleven invited guests.  They are now part of the incredible group of Sherry Explorers who can be found throughout many parts of the world.  After the oath and the toast, all was well because their lives had suddenly changed!!!

El vino es cultura, es historia, y la historia de la Bodega González Byass es fascinante.  El archivero y documentalista de la Fundación GB, Jesús Anguita, nos habló de “El alma de González Byass en 7 copas”

Wine is culture.  It is history. It is the history of the González Byass winery.  It is fascinating. The archivist and document-historian of the González Byass Foundation,  Jesús Anguita, spoke to us about the “soul of González Byass  represented by 7 Sherry glasses”.Entre las diapositivas que proyectó Jesús había una con fotos de directores del Departamento Internacional de diferentes épocas y ahí estaba mi padre, Eduardo Miller Margolles, con su bigote y sus gafas, fue emocionante.

Among the slides that Jesús projected, there were photos of the heads of the International Department during different periods.  There, of course, was a picture of my father, Eduardo Miller Margolles, with his moustache and glasses.  It was a very emotional moment.
Encontré algunas cosas antiguas de la bodega, fotos, libros, copas, etc.. y Sofía, nuestra artista se encargó de la decoración.

I found some memorabilia from the winery – photos, books, commemorative wine glasses, etc.  Of course, our talented designer, Sofía, was in charge of decorating.Estupendas tapas y postres aportados por los Sherry Explorers y armonizados con excelentes vinos, como no de González Byass: Tío Pepe, Amontillado AB, Alfonso, y Solera 1847, y no quedó na de na.

Excellent tapas and desserts were brought by the Sherry Explorers.  We harmonized them with some excellent wines, from the González Byass winery, of course –  Tío Pepe, Amontillado AB, Alfonso, and Solera 1847.  Absolutely nothing was left over.
Aquí vemos a nuestro invitado y a las Sherry Girls, preparados para el anuncio de las dos tapas ganadoras.
