Seville, a jewel of Spain and Jerez, producer of some of the world’s finest wines.

So what have the Gappers been up to this week?

As you know we moved to Seville, and we have only one recommendation if you have never been here, go. Karen will be covering the food side of our stay and for a change, I will let the pictures paint you a picture.


We would love feedback from you. We have been asked to make the posts shorter and more regular, and we will try. But there is so much to see and do and despite years of typing we are still slow!

We took a trip to Jerez, to visit the Bodega Tio Pepe (Uncle Joe) This was very kindly organised for us by Roberto in London and we are very grateful to him. Sherry is wine that many in the UK regard with distain. Give yourself a treat and check out this amazing wine, with six types from bone dry ‘Fino’ through to Christmas pudding sweet Pedro Ximénez. All are worth a try, we were treated to an extraordinary tour of the winery and again with pictures painting a thousand words….
