‘Tis the Season to be Merry

Time for the elixir known as Sherry

Nothing says Xmas like the wine from Jerez

But needs better PR,  I says

The wine your grandma drank each night

Has many styles, ferment’d to delight

Chilled Fino, the light dry one, with pre-dinner nibbles

And sweeter Amontillado might give you the giggles

Quaff dark Oloroso to enhance Christmas cake

Sip Cream as a nightcap, won’t keep you awake

Pair V.O.S to ice cream or vanilla brulée

Your tastebuds will awake, and say “hey, hey, hey“

Amaze and astound with dessert so wonderf’l

By pouring Pedro X as  partner to trifle

Including in cocktails makes you trés chic

Ole! Something different, an interesting tweak

Oh golden sherry –  oft overlooked taste

So versatile for cooking, won’t go to waste

Rediscover the wine made by Solera

With tradition and craft – Viva Espagna!

‘Tis the Season we all make merry

Go on, I dare you, uncork a Sherry

Have a safe and fun Holiday Season
