Details

These sherries are the synthesis that embody the history of six generations of Barbadillo in Sanlúcar de Barrameda.   Wines that command respect and devotion for their age.  Ideal for meditation or conversation as well as the perfect way to round off a good meal.  Once tried, never forgotten.

Points of interest

Halfway through the 19th century, Barbadillo bought a number of old wines from Don Manuel Argüeso, paying 14,000 pesos per barrel at a time when a manzanilla barrel cost just 1,200 pesos. The difference in price highlights the age and value of the treasure held within.  The barrels contained wine from the sacristies of the region’s most prestigious wineries.  This wine recently achieved a highly-prized rating of 100 points from Robert Parker.
