Discovering the extraordinary diversity of sherry is a monumental journey through oenology, history and culture. But, while it embraces a widely varied range of wines and a unique character, sherry doesn?t need to be a cryptic subject. Its singularity, resulting from more than 3,000 years of history, genuine natural conditions, and knowledge accumulated over centuries by vine-growers and winemakers, can all be explained and understood. César Saldaña is an excellent guide to lead us through the fascinating world of these unique wines.
