Country Of Origin: Spain
Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence, with Javier Hidalgo, sixth generation of the Hidalgo family, now in charge of what is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house.

The range of Manzanilla, premium and aged Sherries produced by the Bodega is considered a benchmark of quality and excellence the world over.

Using the best Palomino Fino grapes grown in the bright albariza soils of Sanl�car de Barrameda, Bodegas Hidalgo produces dry salty Sherries through biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor.

The �Faraon� is the head of an Andalusian gypsy family. Oloroso Seco Faraon is aged oxidatively for several years in butts of American oak. The grapes are sourced exclusively from their own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores. Matured in casks of American oak in a �solera� or �fractional blending� system, in the coastal town of Sanl�car de Barrameda, maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows an average of seven years of ageing in cask, to give a dry and wonderfully complex wine.
