The fortified wine known as Sherry can only be produced within an area known as the 'Sherry Triangle'. The triangle is bound by the three towns of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria, all in Cadiz province in Spain. A triangle formed by lines drawn between those towns encompasses an area of approximately 140 square kilometres. The history of Sherry is intimately entwined in the history of those towns and the area between them. It is a history that can be traced back to 1100 BC. The towns themselves are fascinating places in their own right, each with its own attractions and yet with a common denominator, the sherry industry. This book takes you through the history of Sherry overlaid on the history of the towns. Today the sherry industry is not just a commercial venture, it has a prominent part to play within the tourist industry, drawing people from all over the world to the 'Sherry Triangle'. The separate attractions and places to visit in the towns that form the triangle are as much a part of the story as the wine itself.
