Drinking an en rama sherry is like drinking a manzanilla straight from the cask. Fermín Hidalgo, owner and winemaker at Bodegas Hidalgo refers to his En Rama as “the way a manzanilla should be consumed”. Rama means “branch” in Spanish, so enjoying a glass of this sherry is like grabbing an apple off the branch – fresh. This is always produced from a special cellar selection.

Bottled unfiltered and unfined twice a year, after 8 years of aging in 150 year-old American oak casks. Richer in body and more complex than the regular bottling, but the parentage is evident. This wine represents sherry prior to mechanical or micro filtering. A gorgeous gold with complex marine aromas, and characteristic notes of its organic aging: dried fruit, yeast, old wood, herbs and saline memories. Fresh and light on the palate, unctuous and delicate. 15% ABV.

About the Producer

Bodegas Hidalgo was founded in 1792 and is owned and operated by the 8th generation. It has held a preeminent position in Sanlúcar since the 19th Century. They are the third oldest sherry house and the oldest still owned by the founding family.

The house owns and manages 200 hectares of vines, all farmed organically. The albariza soil is rich in calcium carbonate and diatomaceous algae sediments, similar to the soils of Champagne. These soils are all about minerality. Under a microscope, the albariza soil resembles a sponge, retaining water for very long periods of time. Most of them are located in the Pagos of Miraflores (the renowned Sanlucar de Barrameda vineyard) and Balbaína (between the Atlantic and Jerez). Bodegas Hidalgo is proud to have the tallest Cathedral-style winery, fostering the best possible environment for the development of flor.

The flagship wine, Manzanilla ‘La Gitana’ (The Gypsy Woman) is named after a woman who owned a bar near the docks. The wines have received numerous awards, both nationally and internationally.
