Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosia, Oloroso, DO Jerez, Spain

Producer Profile

Bodegas Gutíerrez Colosia is the only bodega in Puerto de Santa Maria situated alongside the riverside ensuring the perfect humidity level needed for the biological ageing of the “Fino” and the developing of the fine layer of yeast - "en flor”.

The range is reliably high quality, individual and authentic - owners, Juan Carlos and his wife Carmen produces 100% natural wines from the traditional crianza-solera method.

Viticulture

The grapes for Colosia's wines come from areas around Jerez, with the vineyards being planted on very special soil called "Albariza". The soil produces outstanding vines perfect for the production of sherry.

Winemaking
