The big­gest win­ery in Jerez – and the most awarded – its tours in­clude a 12-wine tast­ing with sam­ples from the three sherry towns (Jerez, El Puerto and San­lu­car) to high­light the dif­fer­ences, which al­lows you to taste how the slightly dif­fer­ent cli­mates and ge­og­ra­phy of each town in­ject their own char­ac­ter into the sher­ries. Tast­ings can also in­cor­po­rate food, brandy and vine­gar too. See lus­tau.es This tra­di­tional cel­lar pro­duces a stand­out sherry vine­gar and brandy along­side its large range of wines. See fer­nan­do­de­castilla.com Founded in 1830, this bodega is renowned for its fo­cus on ma­ture sher­ries. How­ever, it also worth a visit for its col­lec­tion of Span­ish paint­ings, from the 15th to the 19th cen­turies. See mae­strosierra.com Next door to the Al­cazar, this is one of the most pop­u­lar bode­gas in the city While this is one of the newer bode­gas in Jerez, its rep­u­ta­tion and ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of wines (many older than the com­pany it­self ) make it wor­thy of a visit.

As well as rare, sin­gle-bar­rel aged sher­ries, Tradi­cion also boasts a great pri­vate art col­lec­tion, which in­cludes im­por­tant works by Goya. See bode­gastradi­cion.es
