Protected Designation of Origin
Sherry Vinegar is obtained through acetic fermentation of the alcohol found exclusively in Jerez Region wines. It can be produced either using base wine or ageing wines. The vinegar then is kept in wooden barrels and aged following a traditional process known as “criaderas and solera” which is what gives Sherry Vinegar its highly concentrated and complex flavour.

Its origin can be traced to the south of Spain, in the province of Cádiz, within an area known as the Jerez Region. This is a triangular-shaped region formed by three towns: Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María. This is only place in the world where this condiment can be made.
Sherry Vinegar has such unique aromas and nuances that it has become an essential ingredient in a multitude of recipes, whether they be sauces, dressings or reductions. The acidity and unique ability of Sherry Vinegar to enhance flavours and add nuance is revealing of its distinctive origin and artisanal means of production.
