When we talk about Jerez de La Frontera we link this name with the famed Andalusian horses, the flamenco and of course the wines carrying its name since centuries ago, the Sherry style wines.
These are very special and unique wines. Some people think that they are just sweet (too sweet actually) and hard to drink. Meanwhile the reality is totally different.
Jerez is the only place in the world where the driest and the sweetest wines are produced, from only one grape variety, called Palomino Fino.
Along with the wines from Montilla/Moriles, the ones in Jerez are ranked among the best gourmet wines in the world, since the characteristics of these special wines are able to be paired with the flavours of all the international cuisines.
This is the excellence of Spanish wines and they are the most sought after ones as well. Nowhere in the world you can get VOS (Very Old Sherry) or VORS (Very Old Rare Sherry) wines which have been aged for at least 20 years in the unique wine cellars of Jerez.
It is not only about the wines, it is about art as well. The wine cellars of Jerez, in fact, receive the name of Cathedrals due to their size and arches that resemble somehow the lines and shapes of those imposing Renaissance churches that are found in Spain or Italy for example.
The white limestone hills, called albariza, are the key factor which enhances the complexity of these special wines. The production area of these wines is defined by a triangle zone which is called Marco de Jerez comprising the city of Jerez, Puerto de Santamaria and San Lúcar de Barrameda. The last one gives its name to the biological ageing wine Manzanilla de San Lúcar instead of Fino, name used in Jerez and Puerto de Santa Maria.
