The Sherries of Valdespino
Flights available ALL WEEK LONG!
Valdespino is one of the finest and oldest bodegas in Jerez. In fact, it is the only sherry bodega in the region still fermenting in barrel with indigenous yeasts. This wine goes into the Inocente Fino soleras which then feed the Tio Diego Amontillado soleras. The grapes for these wines comes from a single vineyard, Machardnudo, which is one of the very best sites in the region on the prized, chalky albariza soils. Experience the spectrum of Valdespino Sherries in two different flights:
Introduction to Valdespino Sherries $16
Amontillado Tio Diego
Palo Cortado Viejo Calle Ponce
VORS Old and Rare Valdespino Sherries $22
These sherries are on average 30+ years old and are a very rare treat to taste and discover.
Coliseo VORS Amontillado
Cardenal VORS Palo Cortado
Niños VORS Pedro Ximénez
Bonus! Try both flights for $32

Barrel Select Sherries from Alexander Jules
Friday, November 10th 6pm-8pm
The Alexander Jules label is a collection of personal barrel selected sherries by Alex Russan. Alex searches the Sherry Triangle for exceptional soleras of unique composition or circumstance, tasting each barrel in the solera, marking with chalk those he feels to be the most complex and elegant, or those that reflect the profile he would like to bring out from within that solera. All bottlings are en rama, being only gently filtered or entirely unfiltered, with no other treatments or additions. Meet the man behind the magic, hear his methodology on barrel selections and taste four fantastic, original bottlings from select barrels. Drop in tasting, $16 per flight
