Where to Celebrate International Sherry Week in Melbourne!

Gone are days where sherry was reserved as the drink your grandma would whip out after the Sunday roast.

Sherry has been the underdog success story of the year in Britain, after making serious waves among discerning millennials, and its picked to be the next big thing amid 20-something Aussie drinkers.

Melbourne Spanish-inspired venues, Bomba and Añada Bar & Restaurant, are keeping ahead of the trend by celebrating International Sherry Week next week, from 8 – 14 October.

Food at Añada Bar & Restaurant, Fitzroy

Añada Bar & Restaurant will be honouring the humble tipple with a flight of three tapas perfectly paired with a selection of delicious sherries, while its sister venue, Bomba, will be offering a four-course lunch showcasing how sherry can be used in cooking.

Bomba’s rooftop bar will also be serving several sherry-infused cocktails throughout the week.
