This weekend we ran the Sherry Obstacle Course at Pix Patisserie.
Sherry is an unusual wine product. Â It comes from one particular grape thats only grown in one particular region of Spain. Â Why is it unusual â€“ the same grape is used to produce a wide variety of end products, from what we’d think of as a very light white wine to dark desert wine.
I’ve had the fortunate to spend some time in Sherry country, and I’ll tell you this much: it’s a good product and you’ll come to like it in about two seconds flat.

And here was our reward: snax!
Instead of doing something practical, like having a tap at the bottom of the barrels to tap the sherry for tasting, Sherry makers follow the traditional method of sampling through the top of the keg. Â Example:
It’s a bit tricky to pour into a tiny glass…
Seems like a overcomplicated way to do it, though it definitely shows off your skills.
