Meet the Venenciador

So…What Is Sherry?
In Spain, sherry is the ideal pre-meal aperitif. It can only be made in one place, the area lying between Jerez de la Frontera, Puerto de Santa María and San Lucar de Barrameda in the province of Cádiz, also known as the “Sherry Triangle.” There are many different types of sherry, from dry to floral to a bit sweet. At Jaleo, we carry a variety of premium sherries and our team can guide you to select a glass that is perfect for you.
