An Evening with Don Cesar Saldaña, Secretary General of the Regulatory Council of Sherry 

Tuesday, October 17, 2006, 6:30 pm
Hart House, University of Toronto

Over the past years, The Spanish Wine Society has presented educational events focusing on Sherry, one of the world's least-understood wines and best wine values.

Cesar Saldaña will be in Toronto to conduct an educational seminar illustrating how Sherry is created, from bone dry to lusciously sweet. Amongst the broad range of Sherries to be presented, of particular interest is the rarest Sherry, Palo Cortado, which will be featured. Cesar will share how this special elixir comes into being – not quite as rich and full as an Oloroso and not quite as elegant as an Amontillado – following which he will serve three Palo Cortados, an approximately 10 year old, a 20 year old under the category of V.O.S. (Vinum Optimum Signatum) and an incredible 30 year old under the rarest category of V.O.R.S. (Vinum Optimum Rare Signatum). The Pedro Ximenez being presented is also from the rare V.O.R.S. range.

These rare Sherries have been aged in oak butts for extended periods and have acquired a viscosity, intensity and richness that are exquisite and at times overwhelmingly so. Historically, these great Sherries were kept for the family and special guests. Today, with the new categories of V.O.S. and V.O.R.S., these rare Sherries are available in limited quantities for those who appreciate vinous gold.

This educational Sherry event will also incorporate a food and wine matching, which will likewise be led by Cesar, to illustrate Sherry's versatility.

The cost to attend this event is $40 per wine society member and $45 for the general public. For further information and reservations, call Barry Brown at 416-927-9464.
