Product Description

Review

Manzanilla is impressive in its objectivity, meticulous research, and breadth. Its warmth and enthusiasm for a wine that is all too often simply regarded as a type of sherry rather than its own distinct category is long overdue. Recommended. --Wayward Tendrils Quarterly

Format: Hardcover
I looked forward to reading this book because a Sherry book written in the English language is not common, I love sherry, including manzanilla, and I spent a week in Sanlucar earlier this year. The book is not large, being in A5 format, approx 145p, large font and wide margins. For a history of manzanilla, the bodegas and their owners the book does well. There it stops unfortunately. The book lacks any graphics whatsoever. A map showing the locations of vineyards mentioned in the book would be helpful, as would a few photos of Sanlucar, and inside several of the bodegas. Little mention is made as to how manzanilla is made - for example details on blending as the wine is moved from one criadera to another and from the solera to the bottle, the layout of the criadera (eg Barbadillo's criadera occupies a number of buildings throughout the town and I understand some of the wine may be tankered from one criadera level to another) etc. So, I enjoyed what I read but the book could have been so more informative - especially given the lack of English literature on the subject at the moment.

Good quick read. 15 Sep 2013

Great History on Sanlucar, which is about half the book. The other half on the history and current doings of EVERY Bodega in Sanlucar or of any importance to Manzanilla. Great read, finishes quickly.
