Saturday 24 March at 09.00 saw 13 Club Members with their 5 guests trooping through the frontier on their way for a ‘fun day’ outing to Jerez. We had an excellent tour of the Real Tesoro bodega with a very charming guide.
We were shown barrels galore, horse-drawn wagons and tack, the horses themselves, (which Jane went googoo over) and witnessed a rather strange gathering of domino players.
We then got down to the important ‘bit’ of having a taster!! This was soon followed by a buying frenzy in the shop, so some of us (well most) could re-stock the sherry and brandy content of our individual booze lockers.
Then it was all off for a long leisurely Spanish lunch in Puerto San Maria. A very enjoyable day’s outing.
