      Winemaker Notes

      It is a dry Sherry, of a pale straw color and is bright and clean.

      While the dark color and candied scents may stretch the definition of Fino, this wine’s minerality and freshness speak clearly of the style. It is rustic and wild, intense in chalkiness. Ideal for smoked mackerel.
      WE 90
      Wine Enthusiast
      A medium to rich style of fino, with mild oxidation and aromas of vanilla, resin and dusty white fruits. The palate has a very nice texture to it, and the flavors of dry banana and lightly salted nuts are just right. A pure, convincing wine that proves that Dios Baco is a Sherry producer worth turning to.

      Bodegas Dios Baco, Jerez, Spain
      Image of winery
      The origin of our winery dates back to 1765. However, in the early twentieth century, the legendary Palomino & Vergara winery was founded by Don Juan Vergara and Don Juan Palomino. Years later, these wineries would become part of Rumasa, running successfully for more than 20 years, and then passed into the hands of the first multinational of Jerez, John Harvey & Sons Ltd.

      Finally, the company was purchased in 1992 by its current owner Don Jose Paez Morilla, founder of Bodegas Dios Baco, with the intention to return to the origins of its foundation. That is, to offer limited production, high quality, unbeatable products to the consumers.

      Our Dios Baco cellar was built in 1848, more than 150 years ago, It was part of a complex of cellars called "The Twelve Disciples" after the disciples of Christ.

      At present there are only three cellars: Bodega Baco, Bodega de la Cruz and Bodega Pio XII. The first being the most emblematic and the name given to our winery.

      Jerez-Manzanilla

      View all wine

      Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

      Most sherries are dry and meant to pair alongside food but Americans have traditionally focused on the sweet ones. Sherry comes from only one place in the entire world, Andalucía, where the soil and unique seasonal changes give an unsurpassed character to its wines. The many styles change with the process of production, not really the grape, though certain styles are reserved for different grapes. The main grapes are Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

      Pedro Ximénez can make some amazing sweet sherries. Cream Sherry is technically the sweetest, darkest style of Sherry, except sometimes Pedro Ximénez can be sweeter. The rest of the styles are dry and dependent on the action of flor, which are benevolent film-forming yeasts that make a floating veil on the surface of the wine and protect it from oxidation.

      Fino, from Jerez, and Manzanilla, from the humid and cool coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, are the lightest styles and are meant to be drunk young.

      Amontillado happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino that has a darker color and richer palate.

      When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. Palo Cortado Sherries can behave like Amontillado on the palate but often show a greater balance of richness and delicacy.

      Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for five to twenty five years and become aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon.
