Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence. Passing from father to son, continuity and quality have always been the most important themes for the company, which today uses only grapes from their own vineyards in Jérez Superior.

The Manzanillas, premium and aged Sherries produced by the Bodega are seen as benchmarks of quality and style the world over. Using the best Palomino Fino grapes grown in bright albariza soils, gradual biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor produces the innately saline, fresh Manzanillas of Sanlucar. Ever innovative, Bodegas Hidalgo pioneered an aged, single vineyard ‘Pasada Pastrana’ Manzanilla, and an unfiltered ‘En Rama’ version of their La Gitana Manzanilla, released twice a year to coincide with the flor cycle.

Both have become highly desired by discerning drinkers and diners for their ability to match with food. The Very Old Sherry (VOS) and Very Old Rare Sherry (VORS) ranges offer an insight into Bodegas Hidalgo’s long and rich history, using the names Napoleón and Wellington dependent on which style was provided to which army’s troops during the Peninsula War in the 1800s.
