  • Description

    Jerez de la Frontera in Spain with its colourful and fragrant atmosphere and wonderful landscape forms the background to the traditional wine vintage Fiesta which is celebrated there each year.

    The offering is the responsibility of the Queen, Terese Conte Domecq, and four pretty young Swedish girls who have been appointed maids of honour.

    This Fiesta has been dedicated to Sweden and the four girls, Eva, Marianne, Maud and Elizabeth, had been specially invited to take part in the celebrations.

    This spectacle, full of grace and col ur, takes place in accordance with the exact demands of the ancient ritual and before the image of Saint Gines de la Jare.

    After the grapes had been taken from the baskets to be ground and pressed out, an offering was made to the patron saint of the wine growers, and, when the bells rang out twelve noon, the new wine of the Jerez harvest was born.
