The Lustau Sherry Experience!

This month’s Cúrate Wine Club is going to be a little bit different! With Sherry Week right around the corner, 
(November 8th through 14th,) there couldn’t be a better time of year to introduce you all to the amazing world of sherry.

I have been dying to send our members a special box of sherry, and could not think of a better person to work with for this shipment than my friend Lucas Paya. When I think about my journey of learning and getting excited about wine, Lucas is the one who has taught me so much along the way – about sherry, and wine in general! I had the pleasure to work with him first at elBulli in Spain, and we went on to opening several restaurants together for José Andrés ThinkFoodGroup. I would manage service, with Lucas in charge of the beverage program. If it wasn’t for those experiences, and all I had the opportunity to learn by working alongside him, I would never have understood how the wine list should work when opening Cúrate! Overall he has been a huge influence and such a support to us, often visiting to guide our staff in educational trainings and cheer us on at Cúrate. Now, Lucas is the brand ambassador for Lustau, and the person who guides us to understand sherry better, how to drink it, and what to pair it with! – Felix
