Jerez is a Denominación de Origen in southwestern Spain, with a Mediterranean climate of wet, mild winters & dry, hot summers. Sherry (an Anglicized word for ‘Jerez’) is the most famous fortified wine from this region, made mostly from the Palomino grape. Pedro Ximénez (PX) accounts for about 10% of the Sherry made. After fermentation, a mix of high proof alcohol and old wine called ‘mitad y mitad’ is added. There are 2 major types of Sherry made: Fino & Oloroso.
