Product Description

Produced solely from Palomino grapes by bodega Tío Pepe, a brand of bodega González Byass, Tío Pepe is the world's best known fino from Jerez. The name of this Spanish fortified wine is an homage to José Ángel de la Peña, the uncle of the winery's founder.

Produced only from the mosto yema -the "free-run" juice- this fino from Jerez was fortified to 15.5% alcohol after completing alcoholic fermentation.

After that, Tío Pepe was aged, first under the "flor veil", and then in American oak barrels with the soleras and criaderas system for a minimum of 4 years. 

Serve chilled. Pair with tapas, dry fruit, olives or, best of all, a good Ibérico ham. 

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Tío Pepe is pale yellow with some greyish glints


This varietal Palomino suggests characteristic aromas of fine lees, sourdough and dry fruit, with saline notes and suggestions of green olives, herbs and raw almonds.


This legendary fino from Tío Pepe of bodega González Byass is linear, dry and phenomenally fresh. The palate is gently herbal, citrusy and saline, with a note of dry fruit, a remarkable complexity and a very long finish. 

Our personal opinion

If there is a Spanish wine which needs no introduction, that is Tío Pepe.
