Who is Gonzalez Byass?
Established in 1835 by Manuel Maria Gonzalez, Gonzalez Byass is one of Spain’s oldest and most well-known sherry bodegas. They are also arguably one of the best sherry producers in the world who produce a wide range of styles. Their sherries range from dry to sweet, easy drinking and balanced to complex and intense.
What is Sherry?
Sherry in English or Jerez in Spanish is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. Sherry is produced in a variety of styles and made primarily from the Palomino grape.
Light styles include Manzanilla and Fino and darker, heavier styles include Amontillado and Oloroso.
Sweet dessert styles are made from Pedro Ximenez or Moscatel grapes. They are sometimes blended with Palomino-based Sherries as well to enhance sweetness.
