Albert Adrià Signs a Barrel of Tío Pepe

Celebrated Spanish chef Albert Adrià visited historic Spanish winery Bodegas Tío Pepe (part of the González Byass wine group) this month, underlining his love for these famous Fino sherries.

 

Leaving his name on one of the winery’s historic barrels was only part of the day’s schedule of activities, which also included a tour of the wineries and a wine tasting straight from the barrel – all in the company of the president of González Byass, Mauricio González-Gordon. 

Perhaps most importantly, Adrià also had the opportunity to sample the Fino La Cala, the Fino sherry that forms part of the chef’s “La Cala” project, aimed at recovering and promoting the traditional Spanish aperitivo (aperitif). In addition to Fino, the La Cala product line includes gourmet foods like canned fish and shellfish, olives, potato chips and pork rinds, cheeses, cured meats and sausages, and more.

González Byass is a family-owned company that was founded in 1835 as a maker of fine Sherries and brandies in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Currently run by the fifth generation, the company’s interests have expanded to include a wide portfolio of wines and sprits.
