Since 2012, New York City has been celebrating sherry — one of the world’s most historically important wines and one that’s been having a major renaissance in recent years. For three sherry-filled days, the annual Sherry Fest brings the world of sherry to a broader audience, highlighting the intricately complex and multifaceted fortified wine through dinners, classes, and tastings designed for both sherry aficionados and those just beginning to discover the age-old tradition.
