This is the first of a series of evenings we will be organising at Barley Wood and we are delighted to announce that it has been sponsored by The Sherry Institute of Spain. Our Chef brothers Matthew and Iain Pennington have created six spectacular food matches to Manzanilla, Fino, Palo Cortado, Amontillado, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez. Guests will be guided by our resident Sherry expert and wine writer Barley Blyton from DBM Wines. The evening will be relaxed and informal and offers a great opportunity to taste and discuss a wonderful drink at The Ethicurean.
