Bodegas Tradición

Bodegas Tradición sherries are hand-crafted, pure, not fined or chill-filtered, authentic breeds from Jerez. I enjoy drinking Tradicion in an large wine glass. After pouring the wine, I allow it to breath to enjoy the immense variety of aromas. Except for Finos, which I prefer slightly colder, I drink sherry at the same temperature as red wine.

Other Sherries

I enjoy lighter sherries when having long lunches or dinners with friends, such as cold, refreshing Manzanillas or Finos either from El Puerto or Jerez.

Sherry Misunderstood

Sherry has been mistreated and misconceived in the last decades. Previously it was drunk as a table wine, but then shifted to an aperitif wine. This shift caused it to lose value. Nobody realizes that these wines were poured with meals at the table of every Royal Family in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries. They were as valued as Burgundy or Bordeaux wines.

You must try the eggs and truffles with Palo Cortado.

Vinoteca García de la Navarra

Their oxtail paired with oloroso or the baby squids with onion with Palo Cortado are delicious.


It’s a Japanese restaurant where spicy tuna tartar or toro tataki paired with Amontillado is superb.
