Located in the heart of the town of El Puerto de Santa María, Bodegas Grant has been owned by the same family since 1841. Edmundo Grant and his son Edmundo are the current caretakers of the bodega. Their label, La Garrocha, refers to the famous local dance performed with a stick while on horseback.

Bodegas Grant “La Garrocha” Amontillado Sherry is aged for nine years aging through the Solera system. The microclimate of the bodega produces a distinct flor that gives this sherry its unique characteristics. The nose opens with a elegant floral note with subtle notes sweet nuts. The palate is delicate and rich with additional notes of chestnut, almond and date.

"This wine smells like a sweet Amontillado, but it isn’t sweet at all. Three years in oak have given it caramel aromas that quickly transform into a mature nuttiness, the flavor similar to a chestnut tart. What comes next is taut acidity, coupled with a sensation of salinity that engulfs any sweetness and leaves a sense of balance." - Wine & Spirits

"Accessible and round, with notes of salted caramel, almond husk, date and dried persimmon all weaving through the detailed finish. A great introduction to the amontillado style for Sherry newbies, but still complex enough for aficionados. Drink now." - Wine Spectator
