so they can see their complexities, I say serve them cold!"

Sanlucar de Barrameda and the sea's influence on Manzanilla
Yesterday we had another great day very well organised by Valeska and Fernando of Paladar y Tomar. Two visits in Sanlucar de Barrameda to learn about Manzanilla and why it is different to the wines from Jerez. Our first visit was to Barbadillo, whose range I partly knew already especially Solear, and then later we went to Degado Zuleta, a completely new bodega to me but with some very impressive wines offering fantastic value.
