Introduced by sherry educator Paddy Murphy we’ll look at the diversity of wines from this area, not just Sherry as we (think) we know it.
Ramiro Ibáñez, the talented mind behind Cota 45 goal is to revive tradition and fully express the unique terroir of El Marco de Jerez.
A visionary, Ramiro is one of the most knowledgeable winemakers in the region.
