Jerez’s exceptional geographical location, its close proximity to the Atlantic, the local chalky soil, the palomino grape, and the careful ageing of the grape must, all combine to give the world the pleasure of this unique product known the world ever as sherry. Lovingly aged in wine cellars often linked to cathedrals due to their spacious silence.
The production of these wines is protected by the “Official Regulating Body for the Authenticity of Jerez – Xeres – Sherry” As is the production of Brandy by the “Regulating Body for Brandys of Jerez”. Both products use the traditional ageing process known as Solera and Criadera. Jerez’s wine cellars are large spacious buildings with high – tiled roofs. They are designed in such a way to keep a constant temperature und humidity in semidarkness, conditions essential for the production of sherry.
