Roving Sommelier loves fortified wines, especially the iconic Sherries produced in Andalusia in Southern Spain. Here, there are three main towns that make up “The Sherry Triangle” where sherries are produced. This Amontillado – a complex form of dry Sherry – is produced at Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia located in the town of El Puerto de Santa Maria.

Perfect served at room temperature or lightly-chilled as an accompaniment to a selection of fine artisan cheeses, top notch charcuterie e.g. Pata Negra Jamon and tapas dishes such as spicy meatballs.
