    Think only your grandma drinks sherry? Think again! NV Bodegas Hidalgo Napoleon Amontillado Sherry. Raisiny, dark fruit, even a touch of oxidation, but a dry finish. Great value. Get to know sherry!

    Pedro Ximenez is a delightful with desserts. Montilla-Moriles, located in the south of the Andalucian province of Córdoba, is an historical wine region of Spain. The wine is similar to the Sherry of Jerez, but has suffered from the comparison. Montilla's dry finos have been rougher than the equivalent Sherry for lack of care in the wine-making process. In the past much of the region's production of Pedro Ximenez, the predominant grape in Montilla, was shipped to Jerez to sweeten their Sherries.

    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.

    Spain is one of the Top Ten #wine producer countries of the world with a great variety of grapes but also very different between the #Spanish regions. Although #Spain has thousands of wines, we have choosed some of the best, with Protected Designation of Origin from different regions of Spain, as Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro, Bierzo, Priorat and Jumilla, for red wine; Rueda, Rías Baixas and Ribeiro for white wine; and Sherry & Montilla-Moriles for "generoso" wine; some of them #organic

    Spain - Jerez. This is Sherry Country in southwest Spain, centred around Jerez, the town that gave its name to this nectar. How did they come up with the idea of fortifying wines after fermentation is complete with brandy in the first place? I am just very glad that they did. Sahara dry to honey sweet, these wines are hugely underrated and the tours of the bodegas are fascinating.
