Sherry Wines and Manzanilla de Sanlúcar are considered some of the world’s best wines, acknowledged by winelovers and connoisseurs alike. Sherry and Manzanilla are made through a unique winemaking process known as criaderas y solera, part of a long and brilliant history making them synonymous with quality, prestige and expertise.
Biological or oxidative ageing techniques are what lend these wines their unique character and wide range of aromas, tastes and pairing possibilities.
A process known in Spanish as “cabeceo” or topping up, leads wines that were originally dry (like Fino, Amontillado or Oloroso) to acquire varying levels of sweetness.
Broadly speaking, Sherry Wines are divided into these categories: fortified (Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado, Oloroso and Palo Cortado); fortified liqueur wines (Pale Cream, Medium and Cream) and natural sweet wines (Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel).
Both Sherry Wines and Manzanilla de Sanlúcar have their own Designation of Origin, lending even greater value to their worldwide acclaim.
