El Rey de España, Felipe VI.  Petra y su marido, Nelson, que viven la mayor parte del año en Scottsdale, Arizona, fueron de los primeros que hicieron el juramento de Sherry Explorers allá por mayo del 2014.  Es un honor para nosotros darle la bienvenida al grupo de los Sherry Explorers Honorarios.

HONORS:  Ms. Petra Rodríguez-Conde was named  Honorary Sherry Explorer.  In the United States, Petra makes continuous and tireless efforts to promote everything related to the Spanish culture, including the promotion of Sherry wines.  For her efforts, she has been awarded the Encomienda de Isabel la Católica Medal, bestowed upon her by His Majesty Felipe VI, the King of Spain.  Petra and her husband, Nelson, who during  the majority of their time live in Scottsdale, Arizona, were some of the first persons who took the oath as Sherry Explorers in the year 2014.  It is truly an honor for us to include Petra as one of the Honorary Sherry Explorers.CELEBRACIÓN: Después de la presentación y del nombramiento llegó la hora de la celebración.  Pasamos un rato magnífico con Sherry Explorers y amigos.  Entre los Sherry Explorers estaba Antonio Morales, Presidente de la Nacional-National Benevolent Society de Nueva York que hizo su juramento en la cata de vinos de jerez que hicimos allí en el 2016.

CELEBRATION: After the presentation and the honors ceremony it was time for the celebration.  As always, we had a great time amongst the Sherry Explorers and our friends.  One of the Sherry Explorers we had the honor of hosting was Antonio Morales, who is the President of the National Benevolent Society of New York.  He was sworn-in at a Sherry wine-tasting which we held in New York in 2016.

Disfrutamos de unas riquísimas tapas preparadas por el Catering Primitivo y que armonizamos con vinos de la Bodega Lustau.  Otra magnífica reunión de los Sherry Explorers:  Aprendimos, disfrutamos y brindamos con Jerez.

We enjoyed a variety of delicious tapas that were prepared by  Primitivo Catering and which were paired with Sherry wines from the Lustau Winery.  It was yet another magnificent Sherry Explorers meeting:  We learned about Sherry wines, along with enjoying and making several toasts with them.
