If you love sherry, but missed Sherryfest -- the premier event held in New York earlier this month celebrating these distinctive Spanish wines -- you are in luck. This Saturday, October 19th from 3 - 5pm, sherry expert and wine writer Peter Liem will come to Boston for a reception at Tres Gatos in Jamaica Plain. He will be signing his book, "Sherry, Manzanilla & Montilla: A Guide to the Traditional Wines of Andalucia." When this book was published last year, it introduced enthusiasts to the modern world of artisanal sherry and the bodegas that produce them.

A reception and book signing will be open to the public, with books available for purchase. Liem will also lead a guided sherry tasting, including food pairings, during the event. The guided tasting will be limited to 24 people ($10 with purchase of book, $25 without purchase of book) and reservations are a must. To reserve a spot at the tasting and for more information, please contact the restaurant at 617-477-4851 or at After the event, the party will continue (with more sherries to taste, of course) at Streetcar Wine & Beer, just down the street.

We hope it's just a matter of time before the launch of a Sherryfest Boston.
