Sherry, known as Sherry or Jerez takes its name from the city of Jerez in Andalusia where it is produced. It is a mutated wine obtained by adding a wine brandy. The harvest is dried one to two days in the sun in order to concentrate the aromas. Three grape varieties are used, the Palomino Fino, which produces the best known dry sherry being the Tio Pepe brand, the Pedro Ximenez which produces a softer sherry and Muscat also called Moscatel which produces a very sweet sherry.

There are two main categories of sherrys, the Fino and the Oloroso. For the Fino, the flor, yeast film formed naturally on the surface of the wine during the winemaking process plays a decisive role in obtaining Fino sherry because it protects the wine from oxidation by depriving the wine of any contact with oxygen from the ambient air. The Fino is a wine that has a title around 15 ° because above 16 °, the flower dies. This process of oxidation / reduction is similar to what we know with the wines of the Jura and breeding under sail. Fino lighter is a Manzanillo, a Fino long stored and raised in solera is an Amontillado.

For the Oloroso, closer to the Tawny Port, there is fermentation in barrels and addition of a grape brandy and a controlled aeration. The sugar concentration of an Oloroso will give either a Palo Cortado or an Amoroso or a Cream.

The solera is a wine aging system. The wine at the end of aging destined to be conditioned, is withdrawn from the solera. The quantity of wine removed is replaced by that of the two barrels above and so on. The Spaniards say that with this system, the old wine educates the young. The wine made from a solera in place for a century still contains a tiny proportion of the first century-old wine. This system also ensures the continuity of the style of a house. We propose you the following houses on site or in store, Lustau, Sandeman, TiopPepe Gonzalez Byass and El Maestro Sierra whose Solera dates from 1830 !!!
