What is sherry? About the ingredient sherry. Including 922 recipes with sherry, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Sherry  is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez, Spain.

Sherry is produced in a variety of styles, ranging from dry, light versions such as finos to darker and heavier versions known asolorosos, all made from the Palomino grape

Once bottled, sherry does not benefit from further aging and may be consumed immediately, though the sherries that have been aged oxidatively may be stored for years without losing their flavor.

Bottles should be stored upright to minimize the wine's exposed surface area. As with other wines, sherry should be stored in a cool, dark place.

Fino and Manzanilla are the most fragile types of sherry and should usually be drunk soon after opening. In Spain, finos are often sold in half bottles, with any remaining wine being thrown out if it is not drunk the same day it is opened. 

Amontillados and olorosos will keep for longer, while sweeter versions such as PX, and blended cream Sherries, are able to last several weeks or even months after opening, since the sugar content acts as a preservative.
