The name “Sherry” is derived from the name of the city Jerez in southern Spain, the home of Sherry wine. While many countries around the world produce wines called sherry (California produces four times as much “sherry” as Jerez), they are largely sweet or low-priced fortified wines. The original source of authentic Sherry is a small growing area in southwestern Spain that grows two main grape varietals called Palomino, also known as Listán, and Pedro Ximénez.
Many people know that when cooking with sherry alcohol cooks off, leaving a distinctive flavor, but Sherry also makes a perfect match for light fare like shellfish, seafood, and pasta dishes. The best Sherry brands are imported from Spain and include Lustau, Sandeman, and Valdespino.
