Sherry Bodega Visit: Bodegas Tradicion

In September 2010 I visited several sherry bodegas. Here are pictures and a few notes from Bodegas Tradicion.

(Criadera refers to the level of the barrel in the solera system. The 1/18 refers to the number of the barrel and the total of the set. )

(They also have an art gallery in the bodega. I call this painting "Laserdove".)


  • Bodega only started in 1998
  • Only produce old sherries -  VOS, VORS. 
  • They buy them from other bodegas already aged and put them into their solera system.
  • To my palate, older sherries are effervescent, literally. Very acidic. Lively jumps in your mouth.
