Jerez: Sherry and Stallions

The Marques del Real Tesoro and Valdespino wineries provided a great opportunity to learn about the tradition of sherry making in Jerez. The casks signed by world notables were interesting, as was the sheer magnitude of the storage facilities. 

The winery houses a private art gallery, home to a Suite Vollard, commissioned by the dealer Vollard and eventually consisting of more than 100 etchings made by Picasso between 1930-1937. 


                                                             An early study for Guernica.

            The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art presents a fascinating show of equestrian ballet.


                         The timing, training, and capabilities of riders and horses are astonishing.
