What is Sherry

Sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes from a denominated region in southwest Spain. Sherry is produced in a wide variety of styles from lighter, dry versions to darker and sweeter examples, and bottles are labeled according to their dryness as fino, manzanilla, oloroso, amontillado or palo cortado. The dominant grape used for the production of these wines is Palomino. There are also sweet sherries made from or blended with Pedro Ximenez or Moscatel grapes.
