The world’s best-selling Fino, uncompromisingly dry, always served cold, fantastic with food – especially savoury nibbles such as Jamon Iberico, chorizo, olives, nuts, Manchego cheese and bread and oil.

The story behind Tio Pepe, one of the world’s great fino sherries is a colourful one.Translated, “Tio Pepe” means “Uncle Joe.” Joe was a wine trader who raised his young nephew, Manuel Gonzalez Angel after Manuel’s father died leaving a wife and seven children. Manuel himself later became a prominent exporter of sherry and his cellars were frequented by his benefactor who was particularly partial to one barrel of fino. Delighting in this, Manuel had the words “Tio Pepe” branded on the butt ensuring that it would always be available for when his uncle visited. However, news spread quickly and soon everyone wanted to dip into Uncle Joe’s reserve. There was only one solution – the rest is history. Today annual production has soared to a staggering nine million bottles!
