Denomination of Origin

Sherry Region

A distinguished origin for a unique wine

Sherry, a wine which is truly unique in the world, is exclusively produced in the wine-growing region of Jerez, which is situated in a triangle of land formed by the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María. Its Production Zone takes in the municipal boundaries of Jerez, El Puerto, Sanlúcar, Chiclana, Chipiona, Puerto Real, Rota, Trebuejena and Lebrija.

The region´s oenological tradition goes back over more than 3,000 years and it has developed its own distinctive and exclusive elaboration method. Its unique climatic conditions are ideal for the cultivation of three varieties of grape: the Palomino, which is used to produce the drier types of Sherry, and the Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, which are used for the sweeter varieties.

The Consejo Regulador of the Denomination of Origin, Spain´s oldest, certifies the quality and origin of wines whose roots are thrust deep into the Region´s History. Throughout History Sherry has occupied a privileged position. It was the favourite wine of discoverers such as Columbus and Magellan, its praises were sung by William Shakespeare and Alexander Fleming declared it the best remedy against disease.  With its long history and one of the oldest and most singular wine-producing techniques in the world, Sherry is a uniquely exceptional wine.

We invite you to savour every feature of this unique land and discover the history of a passion for wine which began over 3,000 years ago.
