Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Tío Pepe, produced by González Byass in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), is one of the most famous and acclaimed sherries in the world.

This 100 percent sherry is made from Palomino grapes planted at a 600 acre estate on the outskirts Jerez, in the "Jerez Superior" area.

The harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are transported in 15-kg boxes to prevent them from breaking and beginning fermentation prematurely.

The grapes are gently crushed to obtain the first pressing. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The must obtains 12-13% alcohol content, and will later be used as a "vino fino" (refined wine) or Oloroso sherry.
Wine that is selected to become part of the "criadera" of Tío Pepe is fortified with wine alcohol up to 15% ABV, becoming a "Sobretabla Fino" that will age one more year in American oak casks before becoming part of the "Criaderas y Solera" range, a denomination it will keep for at least five years.

Tio Pepe was created in 1894, and its name refers to José Ángel de la Peña, adviser and uncle of the founder. It is probably the best known Spanish wine in the world, part of it thanks to the icon of the bottle with a hat, a red jacket and a guitar. This image was launched in the 100 anniversary of the brand in 1935. It is a Fino made from Palomino grapes and aged in "solera" for approximately 4 years. It has a pale straw colour, with a delicate aroma (almond-like), with no acidity, very dry and light on the palate.

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
