Tio Pepe Bodega

Gonzalez Byass Sherry

Gonzalez Byass Sherry

González Byass was created in 1835 by Manuel Maria González and remains in family hands today, now in the fifth and sixth generation.  Founded in Jerez de la Frontera, Andalusia, in the heart of Sherry country, it is dedicated to the production of high-quality sherries.

The Sherry triangle, made up of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda, has a unique microclimate influenced by the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. Production is dominated by the Palomino variety, and vines are planted in the white Albariza soil, with high chalk content which is excellent for retaining moisture.  These soil conditions, combined with over 3,000 hours of annual sunshine, fresh, humid breezes from the west (poniente) and warm, dry breezes from the east (levante) have formed the perfect marriage with the Palomino variety to produce an array of sherry styles.

All sherries are aged following the traditional Solera system where the wines are blended in 600 litre American oak casks. Many styles are produced with distinctive characters depending on whether they have been aged under the influence of the flor (a layer of natural yeast) or as an oloroso (in contact with oxygen).

Today the portfolio includes a wide range of sherries including Tio Pepe, the Superior Range and the VORS range, enological gems aged for over 30 years.

Tío Pepe

Tío Pepe

Tio Pepe, the world’s best-selling Fino, originates from Jerez in southern Spain where it is drunk by the locals with tapas, as they’ve done for over a century. Manuel Maria Gonzalez Angel, founder of González Byass, named ‘Tio Pepe’ after his ‘Uncle Joe’ who created his pale very dry white wine in 1841. GonzálezByass was the first Sherry winery to export the fino style back in 1844 when they sent casks of this local style to the UK. Tio Pepe was the first registered trademark in Spain and this iconic wine is now sold in over 100 markets. Every spring, a limited edition unclarified and unfiltered fino is released to showcase a fresh from the cask experience. This Tio Pepe En Rama is alive with flavour and has more nutty and yeasty aromas than the usual Tio Pepe.
