Jerez Fiestas de la Vendimia 2023

Del 2 al 17 de septiembre
Official Program of the Jerez Grape Harvest Festival 2023

The Treading of the Grapes is the institutional event that marks the beginning of the official programming of the Grape Harvest Festival, a festive cycle of great local importance and prestige, deeply rooted in the collective identity of the entire population. While the wine industry and its prestigious products are the main focus of the festivities, they also intertwine with other cultural symbols unique to Jerez. This fusion of traditions, customs, and culture in all its forms highlights the full extent of the region’s distinctive character and that of its inhabitants.

The ceremony re-enacts the commencement of the wine production process: the arrival of the grapes at the winepress where the traditional task of physically treading the recently picked bunches of grapes takes place, a process during which the juice is slowly extracted from the fruit and the first must of the harvest begins to flow from the spout, accompanied by music from the band.

The event is co-organized by Jerez City Council and the Regulating Council of the Denominations of Origin “Jerez-Xérès-Sherry” and “Manzanilla – Sanlúcar de Barrameda” with the collaboration of Bodegas Fundador and Bodegas González Byass.
