BODEGAS GRANT AMONTILLADO

Jerez-Sherry, Spain

Situated in El Puerto de Santa Maria and popularly known as Bodegas Las 7 Esquinas (7 corners winery). Its origins go back to 1841 when it was founded by Edmundo Grant Falconell.

Bodegas Grant, located in the heart of the town of El Puerto de Santa MarĂ­a, has been owned by the same family since 1841. Edmundo Grant and his son Edmundo are the current caretakers of the bodega. The Grant family are former almacenistas who only recently began to estate bottle. Although they do not own any vineyards, they primarily source grapes from the famed Pago Valvaina. Their label, La Garrocha, refers to a famous dance performed with a stick while on horseback.

The Amontillado la Garrocha spends 9 years aging through the solera system. The microclimate of the bodega produces a distinct flor that gives the sherry its unique characteristics.
