Sherry’s New Regulations

The European Commission just passed a new amendment to the law when it comes to your favorite Sherry.

Scheduled to come into effect within the next few weeks, the new law will permit wines fermented to a minimum of 15% ABV for Fino and Manzanilla, and 17% ABV for Amontillado, Palo Cortado, and Oloroso. These last three will also be classified as sherry and sold within the DO classification, a privilege that had been reserved only for wines fortified by grape spirit until now.
