Tio Pepe, the world’s best-selling Fino, originates from Jerez in southern Spain where it is drunk by the locals with tapas, as they’ve done for over a century.
The founder of Gonzalez Byass, Manuel Maria Gonzalez Angel, named ‘Tio Pepe’ after his ‘Uncle Joe’ who created his pale very dry white wine in 1841.
Tio Pepe is produced from Palomino Fino, a grape variety that thrives in the chalky soil of Jerez. Once in barrel it is aged for a minimum of 5 years in the solera system.
A crisp, fresh and uncompromisingly dry Fino. Served chilled, straight from the fridge, Tio Pepe is fantastic with food. It has a natural affinity with fish and is perfectly suited to tapas-style dishes such as ham, chorizo, olives and Manchego cheese.
