1.322 sherry explorer repartidos por todo el mundo (más de 200 sólo en Japón) son testigos de la excelente labor de difusión que desde hace varios lustros viene desarrollando Vicky Miller. De sangre asturiana y leonesa, gaditana de adopción y maestra de profesión, esta ciudadana del mundo ha pasado buena parte de su vida en Estados Unidos, donde comenzó a hacer patria con los vinos que le enseñó a amar su padre, Eduardo Miller, directivo durante muchos años de González Byass.

Con ella nos hemos sentado A mesa y mantel en uno de sus restaurantes favoritos. Pantalán G lleva más de cinco años siendo referente en la restauración de Puerto Sherry. Su chef, Paloma Arjona, nos ha brindado un menú con productos de aquí y de allí muy bien tratados y presentados. Hemos compartió un ceviche de pez mantequilla, tataki de atún sobre aguacate, croquetas de boletus y trufa con panceta y queso de cabra; bacalao al pil pil de piquillo, lechazo deshuesado con parmentier y tarta de queso con frutos rojos, mientras repasábamos su pasión por el jerez y el empuje que ha heredado de su madre, María Luisa Fernández, nuestra inolvidable señora Miller del colegio del mismo nombre en el que se educaron muchas generaciones de jerezanos, entre ellos quien suscribe.

Having Lunch with the Founder of the Sherry Explorers

This week we share the details of the lunch that we shared with Vicky Miller at  “Pantalán  G”,  a notable restaurant in Puerto Sherry

1322 Sherry Explorers (spread throughout the world, more than 200 of them in Japan) are witnesses to the excellent educational efforts that Vicky Miller has achieved, throughout a period of various years.  Vicky’s roots stem from the Spanish provinces of Asturias and Leon, but she has lived in the province of Cadiz since an early age.  Although she is a teacher by profession, this citizen of the world has spent many years living in the United States.  There, she began her quest to promote an appreciation for the wines that her father, Eduardo Miller, instilled in her. He was the International Sales Manager at the González Byass winery for many years.  

We have joined her to have lunch at one of her favorite restaurants: “Pantalán G ” which has been the restaurant of note in Puerto Sherry for  more than five years. The restaurant’s chef, Paloma Arjona, has served us a special menu with ingredients from here and there, with her special touch and professional presentation.   

Vicky and I shared: “a butterfish ceviche,  tuna tataki on a bed of avocado, boletus and truffle croquettes with bacon  and goat cheese; pil pil codfish with piquillo peppers, roast boneless suckling lamb with parmentier sauce and cheesecake with berries.”

While enjoying our lunch we have talked about her passion for Sherry wines and the courage that she inherited from her mother, María Luisa Fernández, the unforgettable Mrs. Miller, Director of the Miller School, at which many children from the City of Jerez were educated, including myself.
