A classic Amontillado that shows all of the characteristics of an old wine. If you like your Sherry to be rich, nutty and have a sweet touch of sticky caramel at its core, then you'll be a fan of this big-bodied Amontillado from the Colosia range.

Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosía

Since 1838, Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosía are located in the mouth of the river Guadalete in El Puerto de Santa María. The buildings were used by different producers until it was acquired by the Gutiérrez family in the 1920s. It operated as an almacenista, a bodega that produces wine for other, larger bodegas – in this case Williams & Humbert, Osborne, Lustau and Gonzalez Byass among others. During the late 1990s, the company was split among different family members and Juan Carlos Gutiérrez decided to start bottling wines under his own name in 1998. Nowadays it’s one of the last family owned bodegas in the region. The Gutiérrez Colosía wineries are the only ones located by the riverside, right on the quay and probably the closest to the ocean of all sherry bodegas.
