The Fino wine from the designation of origin Jerez-Xérès-Sherry can only be produced in El Puerto de Santa Maria and Jerez de la Frontera.
Although the Finos of Jerez and El Puerto are the same type of wine, there are differences between them due to the towns’ respective microclimates. El Puerto’s location on the coast and its sea-level altitude give a singular flavour and fragrance.
The aging of the grape juice takes place in wineries located in the city centre of El Puerto, surrounded by the Guadalete river (East) and the Atlantic Ocean.
If you are staying in El Puerto a vist to one of the Sherry Bodegas is a must.
The winery tours explain the biological wine aging process (through the “solera” and “criadera” system), you will get to taste the different wines from each winery. There are varios bodegas to visit click on the link for times and prices of each tour
