This week on At the Root of It Erin speaks to some local sherry producers in Jerez, Spain, going to two family owned bodegas where sherry and brandy have been produced for generations in the white, chalky soil native to the region. Learn about the open air buildings housing the distilling and aging equipment, why harsh winds help the growers, how grapes become sherry AND brandy, and what a sherry producer and a bullfighter have in common. This episode was sponsored by The Barterhouse: fine imported wines from across the globe.
