International Sherry Week por la Bahía de Tokyo…ALUCINANTE!!!/ International Sherry Week on Tokyo Bay…INCREDIBLE!!!


Este año celebramos la International Sherry Week nada menos que en Japón.  Fue una semana intensa pero hoy os cuento el Sherry Party Sunset Cruise por la Bahía de Tokyo.

This year we celebrated International Sherry Week in an incredible place –  Japan.   It was an intense week full of activity, but for now we will only tell you about the Sherry Party Sunset Cruise on Tokyo Bay.Las artifices de esta increíble actividad fueron Michiko Takahashi, la fundadora de los Sherry Clubs, y Momoko Izumi (Margarita), venenciadora, Formadora Homologada del vino de Jerez, autora del libro “SHERRY”y Sherry Explorer Honoraria entre otras cosas.  Momoko se encargó de toda la organización, que no fue poca cosa, y nos invitó a formar parte de está celebración y hacer nuevos Sherry Explorers.  Allá que nos fuimos.

The artistic geniuses behind this incredible event were Michiko Takahashi, the founder of Japan´s Sherry Clubs, and Momoko Izumi (Margarita), champion “venenciadora,” Certified Sherry Wine Educator, author of the book “SHERRY,” and Honorary Sherry Explorer, among many other things.  Momoko was in charge of organizing the event, which was no small feat,  and she invited us to be part of the celebration by swearing in the new Sherry Explorers.  So, off we went.300 amantes del vino de jerez nos juntamos en la cubierta del crucero con un cartelito que decía “#sherryweek”.  Todos gritamos: “Sherry, Sherry, Sherry“.  Genial.

300 Sherry Lovers gathered together on the main deck of the cruise ship as we each held up a sign with the Sherry week hashtag – “#sherryweek”.  We all yelled: “Sherry, Sherry, Sherry“.  It was great!En el salón de la cena nos recibieron dos venenciadoras que nos ofrecieron una copa de fino.  210 referencias de vinos de jerez, 12 de brandies de jerez y algunos vermuts.  Entre ellas una mesa con vinos VOS y VORS.  Entre los manjares no podía faltar el jamón de Cinco Jotas.

In the dining hall we were greeted by two “venenciadoras” who offered us a glass of fino sherry.  Also available, were  210 Sherry wine references, 12 Sherry brandies, and a few vermouths.  Among them, there was a table which was only serving sherry wines with VOS and VORS designations.  In addition to all of these delicacies, there was, of course, plenty of Cinco Jotas Spanish ham.233 japoneses amantes del jerez hicieron su juramento de Sherry Explorers, ¡no me lo podía creer!

233 Japanese lovers of Sherry wine took the Sherry Explorer´s oath.              I couldn´t believe it! ¡¡1033 Sherry Explorers por el mundo!! Este año lo celebraremos en nuestra Cena de Honor anual.

¡¡WE are now 1033 Sherry Explorers throughout the world!!  This year we will celebrate this milestone at our annual Honors Dinner.El broche de oro fue el nombramiento de Sherry Explorer Honoraria a Michiko Takahashi.  Michiko-San ha sido una increíble impulsora del Sherry en su país y sus dos Sherry Clubs en Kyoto y en Tokyo son lugares de referencia de nuestros vinos.

The finishing touch and grand finale of the event was the naming of Michiko Takahashi as an Honorary Sherry Explorer.  Michiko-San has been an incredible promoter of Sherry wine in her native country.  Her Sherry Clubs in Kyoto and in Tokyo are renowned  points of reference for our beloved Sherry wines.
