One day in Jerez: Royal School AND Bodega? Which One?

We have tickets for the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art show at noon and train tickets leaving Jerez de La Frontera at 18:30. Is there enough time for a visit to a bodega as well? Are there any near the Royal Andalusian School? Thanks for any assistance and guidance.

I would see the Tio Pepe Bodega. They have a tour on a small vehicle that looks like a train. One of the storage areas is a circular building built by Eiffel. At the end they have wine tasting.

Thanks Benny. Do you happen to know how far Tio Pepe is from the Royal Andalusian School?

The closest bodega tour is at SANDEMAN because it is housed between the Real Escuela venu and the museum of carriages. http://www.sandeman.eu/

The tour they provide is quite good and you have an option for some tasting afterwards. Sandemans is the most convenient. And the carriages museum (part of the Real Escuela) is very nice and worth visiting. You can get up close to those horses too becasue they are stabled here.

If you opt for Gonzales Byass and enjoy walking then it is quite a long walk but interesting through the centre of Jerez. You could go via the Cathedral way through the old city. Or go through the main central shopping street Calle Larga.

You can't go wrong at either, both very nice, as Cadiz_ Lover says, try and visit the Cathedral a very nice one. Please if you are at Gonzalos Byass, don't drink the mouse's wine. LOL. Good luck and have fun. Hubie

I think time might be a factor favoring Sandeman. It's actually very close to The Real Escuela, so getting there after the show shouldn't be a problem. I'm assuming the shows are still offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon. The show ends at about 13:30, making it very simple to walk around the block to Sandeman, which offers English tours at both 14:00 and 15:00. The tour lasts an hour so you'll be done in plenty of time to catch your train.

I believe Tip Pepe's English tours are offered at 14:00 and not again until 17:00. The two places aren't close to each other, so it'd probably be difficult to make it to Tip Pepe in time for the 14:00 tour, and going to the 17:00 could be cutting it close in terms of getting to the station in time for your train.

Of course, to be sure you can verify the tour times at each Bodega's website.

Seeing the horse show and a bodega will make for a really nice afternoon. Have fun!
