Tio Pepe is a Fino style, the most delicate and elegante of the Sherry styles, aged for 4 years under the flor, a unique layer of yeast produced naturally in Jerez.
González Byass was the first Sherry winery to export the fino style back in 1844 when they sent casks of this local style to the UK. This wine has now become a national icon and is the number one selling fino in the world, today sold in over 100 markets.
The wine was named in honor of Gonzalez Byass’ founder’s uncle Jose Angel (Tio Pepe meaning Uncle Joe in Spanish). The brand was the first registered trademark in Spain and has become one of the most famous Spanish brands internationally.
In addition, Gonzalez Byass is famed for its innovative special releases, such as Tio Pepe en Rama and Las Palmas which show the natural development of Tio Pepe over time. Winemaker Antonio Flores was chosen as the Fortified Winemaker of the Year at the 2016 International Wine Challenge.
