Argueso Sherry

Argüeso is a name that resonates deeply within the world of sherry, a unique and multifaceted wine from the Jerez region in southern Spain. Founded in 1822 by León de Argüeso y Argüeso, Bodegas Argüeso has been crafting exceptional sherries for almost two centuries, establishing itself as one of the stalwarts in the industry.

Situated in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Bodegas Argüeso enjoys the specific microclimate provided by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. This plays a significant role in the production of its sherries, especially the Manzanilla style, which is exclusive to this particular region. The constant and moist winds coming off the sea encourage the growth of flor, a yeast that forms a protective layer on the surface of the wine during its ageing process in barrels. This is essential in giving Manzanilla its characteristic light, dry, and slightly saline flavour.

Argüeso’s range isn't limited to just Manzanilla. The bodega also produces other traditional styles of sherry, such as Amontillado, Oloroso, and Pedro Ximénez. Each of these styles reflects a distinct production process, ageing period, and flavour profile, showcasing the versatility and richness of sherry as a wine category.

Bodegas Argüeso maintains a strong dedication to traditional production methods, using the solera system – a dynamic ageing process where wines are methodically blended across different vintages. This ensures consistency, complexity, and continuity in the sherries’ profiles.

As consumers worldwide are rediscovering sherry, institutions like Argüeso are crucial. They serve as living testimonies to the rich history, tradition, and innovation that characterise the Jerez region. Argüeso's commitment to producing high-quality sherries, deeply rooted in tradition yet ever-evolving, ensures that they remain at the forefront of this exciting wine renaissance.
