Location: Spain

close

The city of Jerez is world-famous for its sherry wine, made from grapes grown in the area's chalky soil. Students will visit one of its "bodegas" or wineries to see the sherry wine production process and to taste different types of sherry wines.

Possibly the oldest city in Europe, Cádiz was founded in 1100 BC by the Phoenicians. Christopher Columbus later sailed from Cádiz to the Americas. Today visitors to Cádiz enjoy its colorful houses, relaxed atmosphere, and beautiful beaches.
