"With 20,000 casks at the disposal of the winemaker, Antonio Flores, the bread-and-butter Fino remains Tio Pepe ....... whose light, appetisingly savoury style and briney tang is a benchmark for the kind of moreish dry white that works so well with tapas."
Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 11/07/2015
"This is the sherry that demonstrates that big brands can also be good to drink. Tio Pepe is a classic, clear and bright and with a delicious salty tang. Follow my holiday tactic and make your Tio & Tonic with three or four parts tonic to one of sherry."
Gonzalez Byass was founded in Jerez in 1835 by Manuel Maria Gonzalez. At the young age of 23 he decided to dedicate himself to the production and commercialisation of sherry wines and spirits. In 1844 the first barrels of Tio Pepe were exported to London. Tio Pepe being named in homage to the uncle of the founder, Jose Angel. Then in 1855 the company's UK distributor Robert Blake Byass was made a partner in order to strengthen links with the UK, the number one market for Sherry wines. However nowadays the company is controlled by the Gonzalez family, now in its fifth generation. Gonzalez Byass has since been dedicated to the production and commercialisation of quality Sherry wines and Spirits and Tio Pepe went on to become the number one selling Fino in the world.
Gonzalez Byass is situated in the city of Jerez, Andalusia, in the heart of the D.O. Jerez. Gonzalez Byass owns over 800 hectares of vineyards, all situated in Jerez Superior 20-70m above sea level. This area enjoys a warm and humid climate which helps in the maturation of the grapes. The Gonzalez Byass vineyards are found on the albariza soil which is the best soil in the area for the growth of vines as it has a very high chalk content and therefore a large capacity for maintaining moisture, very important given the long, hot and dry summers experienced in Jerez. Gonzalez Byass vineyards are 95% Palomino and 5% Pedro Ximenez, making it the only winery to have PX planted in Jerez. All Palomino grapes used for Tio Pepe are hand picked to ensure that they arrive at the pressing plant in optimum condition.
