Sherry is a Spanish fortified wine that is aged through the solera system. Sherry comes from the region of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María in Andalusia. Only wine aged in one of these cities can call itself sherry. From their ancient origins to their unique aging method, everything about sherry wine is truly authentic.
The wines created in the Jerez region are produced through an age-old maturation method that has been passed down through many generations. The essential feature of this totally unique process, known as criaderas y solera, is that which is to be bottled is drawn from the lower vessels at the solera level. These wines at the solera level contain the oldest wines. The amount taken from the solera is replaced by an equivalent amount of younger wine from the row above, the first criadera. This in turn will be replaced by the same amount of the row above that has an even younger wine and so on. This results in exceptional wines that maintain the same quality year after year.
