Production of Solera 1847
As soon as the Palomino grapes arrive in the cellar they are gently pressed. The must obtained from this first pressing is called "must yolk" and is considered the most elegant and delicate. The Pedro Ximénez grapes will be pressed separately. After fermentation and classification, Palomino wine is fortified to 18% and Pedro Ximénez to 15.5%. Each wine enters a solera of American oak boots, to age in contact with the air. After being mixed, the wines will remain in the solera of Solera 1847.
What kind of wine is Solera 1847
Sweet generous wine with 8 years of aging following the Solera system.
The Gonzalez Byass winery
It was in 1835 when the young Manuel María González Ángel founded González Byass and began, thus, a long and passionate journey dedicated to the world of wine.
Manuel Mª found the best support to start in the fascinating business of Jerez in his maternal uncle, José Ángel, Tío Pepe. He was the one who taught him everything about fine wine to the point of giving name to the foundation solera in whose boots can still be read today "Solera del Tío Pepe". Thus begins the legend of the most famous Fino in Spain and the world.
Currently, it is still a family winery, presided over by the 5th generation of the González family who has always shown their passion for the world of wine, their love of nature and support for the environment.
