In 1835 a young man named Manuel Maria Gonzalez Angel moved to Jerez to break into the sherry industry. He purchased a very small winery where he started producing and exporting his own wines. By 1885 his company was very successful and he decided to team up with Robert Blake Byass, his agent in England. The result was the Gonzalez Byass Company, which is now run by the fourth and fifth generations of the Gonzalez family.
Tio Pepe is a pale, straw-colored wine with soft aromas of apple, almond, and honey. Low in acidity but well balanced, the palate displays crisp notes of apple and roasted nuts. Hints of mushroom and iodine appear on the dry, lasting finish. It is an excellent pairing for tapas, seafood, ham, and mild cheese.
