Duende is proud to join the celebration of the World Sherry Day next Sunday, May 26th. Starting today, and for the rest of this week, we’ve put together a bunch of enticing offerings designed to highlight how good sherries are and how great they go in all the food-related situations, from the apperitives to desserts, from the driest and savory to the sweetest and raisiny. We’ve put together special pairings of sherries with cheeses and other foods and we’ll also be offering up to four Sherry cocktails, some of them created just for the occasion by our Bar Manager Troy Bayless and our General Manager Rocco Somazzi. The Bodega will be offering free tastings of some of our best sherries (one different selection every day), and we’ll throw a special 10% discount on all the retail purchases of three or more bottles of Sherry.
For the big day, Sunday 5/26, we’ve prepared a special tasting of 10 sherries for $10. The tasting will be happening from 2.30 to 5.30pm, and it will be conducted by our Wine Director, Gerard Maristany and Rocco Somazzi. They will explore the differences and nuances of each of the sherry styles. That night, we are putting together a very special deal: all our sherries bottles will be served in the restaurant at 50% off.
To finish with the celebration, we’ll have one of our famed “Noche con Duende Flamenco” sessions, directed by Carola Zertuche. A free taste of Sherry will be included with the purchase of a ticket for the show ($15).
Tickets for the flamenco show are available here
