Sanlucar de Barrameda lies on the Guadalquivir river estuary and is synonymous for its magnificent Manzanillas which when taken lightly chilled, with its appealing camomile bouquet, is regarded by many as the ultimate in aperitifs. The smooth medium dry Amontillado has a universal appeal and needs no introduction.

Port has become too much of an after dinner institution since tawny port can be appreciated in less formal gatherings. The epitome of the producers art are the vintage and single quinta ports which need 10 to 20 years before reaching drinking maturity, where decanting is essential to bring the clear wine off its sedimentary crust.
Portugal’s other fortified gem is produced on the tiny island of Madeira some 500 miles west off the coast of Morocco. It is a unique style of wine and like sherry it is carefully matured in a solera system before final bottling. The wines have tremendous power and flavour and provide a range of taste sensations from luscious sweetness to dry aperitif style.
