Last Wednesday, 3 November, the Atalaya Museums in Jerez (Cadiz) hosted the awards ceremony of the Gold Medals for Merit in Fine Arts 2009.

Over 450 guests attended the event and, after a brilliant performance by Tricicle, who expressed their gratitude on behalf of the award winners and thanked for their contribution to the Fine Arts in Spain, were served an aperitif in the wine cellar patio and the Don Jorge function room, prepared by Alfonso Catering, and then transferred to the Gonzalez Byass Winery – which this year is celebrating its 125th anniversary – for lunch and a short tour of its magnificent facilities.
