Bodegas San Francisco Javier

Jerez, Spain

At a Glance
  • Peter Sisseck of Pingus fame’s limited release Fino project in Jerez.
  • Peter will produce two Single Vinyard Sherries – a Spring release Fino and a Fall release Fino-Amontillado.
  • The cellar and solera were originally founded by Almacenista Don Angle Zamorano in the 1960’s.
  • The Fino is from Vina Corrales in Pago Balbaina.  This Pago is the closest one in Jerez to the ocean and so the freshest site.
  • The Fino-Amontillado will be from La Cruz in Pago Macharnudo. This Pago produces bolder yet fine wines.
  • The idea is that these Finos be thought of as wines and to that purpose they will be bottled in Burgundy bottles with Diam corks.
