Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana is a family-owned winery located in the town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the Sherry Triangle of southern Spain. Founded in 1792, the winery has a long history of producing high-quality Sherry wines.
Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana is particularly known for its Manzanilla, a type of Fino Sherry that is produced exclusively in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Manzanilla is known for its delicate, salty, and nutty flavor profile, and is often described as the perfect aperitif wine. Hidalgo's Manzanilla La Gitana is considered one of the best examples of this style, and has won numerous awards and accolades.
In addition to Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana produces a range of other Sherry wines, including Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, and Pedro Ximénez. The winery also produces a range of brandies, including its well-regarded Hidalgo Napoleon VORS brandy.
Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana is committed to traditional winemaking methods, and its wines are aged in a labyrinth of underground cellars that date back centuries. The winery is also known for its sustainable practices, including the use of solar panels to generate electricity and the installation of a rainwater harvesting system.
