About Sherry Wines
Sherry is a fortified wine which can only be produced in the “Sherry Triangle'' – formed by the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria, and Sanlucar de Barrameda in the province of Cadiz, south-western Spain. The Consejo Regulador’s role is to protect the Denomination of Origin (DO) Jerez-Xeres-Sherry and Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda, ensuring that no wine from any other geographical area is sold as Sherry wine. DO Jeres-Xerez-Sherry and Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda is the oldest DO in Spain, and has 2,800 wine-growers. Wine has been produced in the area since Roman times, and Sherry has been exported around the world since the 16th century
