JEREZ de la Frontera has beaten eight hundred cities, spanning across nine countries, to be named the 2014 European City of Wine.

The award – by the Network of European Wine Cities in Marsala, Italy – was given to the city because of its quality of wine and efforts to stimulate wine tourism.

Jerez will host a series of events in its famed bodegas to celebrate the honour and increase awareness of its wines and sherries.
