Expert Opinion

In the press...

"My favourite Manzanilla Sherry of all - the palest and driest of all styles - this phenomenal aperitif style of wine is the ultimate pick me up and if you have yet to be gripped by the Sherry scene then this is the perfect starting point. Crisp and citrusy, refreshing and vital, served ice cold this is one fo the finest value wines in the world."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 13/04/2013

Background

History

Bodegas Hidalgo is the definitive Manzanilla house, established in 1792 and now thriving under the sixth generation of the founding family. It is one of the few family owned bodegas left. ‘La Gitana’ Manzanilla is one of Spain’s oldest wine brands and today one of the country's most popular. Its dry, fresh style is the perfect foil for the seafood tapas in the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda.

Regional info

Hidalgo have occupied the same bodega in the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda since 1792. It is the closest to the sea, ensuring that the bodega is cooled by a breeze in the hot summer months, which helps preserve the freshness of hundreds of barrels of Manzanilla, protected from oxidation by a layer of yeast "flor". Hidalgo are unusual in the sherry region for owning many of their own vineyards to ensure that top quality Palomino Fino grapes are delivered from the chalky "albariza" soils.
