El Puerto de Santa Maria – Gutiérrez Colosía is located in the town of El Puerto de Santa María. Established in 1838 on the banks of the Guadalete River, it is today the only local winery that benefits from this placement. The combined effects of the river and the ocean breezes create a very active flor that remains on the wine year round, yielding special Sherry which illustrates the concept that in Jerez, location is everything. Juan Carlos Gutiérrez currently runs the operations in this fabulous old bodega. Once an almacenista, Juan Carlos decided to begin estate bottling in 1997. The bodega had previously been selling its stock to the major Sherry houses. Juan Carlos’s wonderful solera hails from the beginnings of the winery, with butts ranging in size from 500 to 1000 liters.
