Watch the video for a discussion of the choices: Discuss the Tio Pepe Palmas collection

25. February – Every year since 2010, renowned sherry producer González Byass of Jerez, Spain, has invited a world-renowned wine specialist to help him select that year’s sake from the Tío Pepe Palmas collection.

This year, to mark the 10th anniversary, a virtual tasting was organized, where former tasters tasted ten specially selected vintages of Las Palmas Sherries. The group concluded the tasting with the presentation of the Las Palmas 2020 collection, selected by Ferran Senteles, Spain’s leading sommelier, author and journalist.  The Palmas 2020 collection was released in Spain in December 2020 and will make its debut in the United States this month.

Master blender Antonio Flores, IWC’s 2016 Winemaker of the Year, has joined the world’s most eminent wine professionals for the past decade. He says: The Palmas collection is the essence of Tío Pepe and a demonstration of the evolution of the great Fino. The solera system allows us to see through the wines of Tío Pepe Palmas, the small variations that accumulate in the wines, and the nuances of how Una Palma evolves into a unique identity when these wines reach the level of Tres and Cuatro Palmas.

Gonzalez Byass, vice president of the board of directors and member of the Pedro Rebuelta family in the fifth generation. describes the Tío Pepe Palmas collection as being defined by two main factors : Quality and selection. The quality is the work of our master blender, but the selection is made according to the expertise and high standards that wonderful craftsmen and wine connoisseurs set for their selection each year.

Una, Dos, Tres and Cuatro Palmas wines are respected and revered around the world for their excellent results in the most famous competitions. Critics now know the finesse and exceptional quality of these wines, which have won a place on the wine list of some of the world’s best restaurants.

The Tío Pepe Palmas 2020 collection is imported by González Byass USA and is available at select stores starting at $36.99 for Una Palma, $43.99 for Dos Palmas, $78.99 for Tres Palmas and $107.99 for Cuatro Palmas.
