Served chilled in a wine glass, this nutty, slightly Marmitey drink is, a 15% ABV, not a great deal stronger than your average white, but it parks a lot more flavour for the price.

Served ice cold on a hot summer day, Fino sherry is hard to beat. It’s salty, tangy, nutty and amazingly refreshing. And it goes brilliantly with a wide range of foods. Try it!
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.

The corks on this wine were too small and slightly loose so that a small amount dribbled out of the bottles making them sticky and smelly.

For dry sherry under £10, Tio Pepe is always my first choice. It is consistently good with a smooth, dry, deliciously nutty flavour. In summer we drink it chilled but, at any time of year, it is an excellent aperitif. Luckily, Tesco put this on special offer at just about the right interval for me to keep a reasonable stock but they are usually the best price on the high street in any event. Well worth the few extra pennies.
