It really is a great time to be a sherry fan in Madrid. One of the latest big openings here was of Bibo Madrid, a new Madrid outpost of Dani Garcia’s Costa del Sol empire, and just behold the magnificent list of sherries that my good friend and colleague Luis has just sent me.
No fewer than 38 sherries – four manzanillas, nine finos, eight amontillados, eleven olorosos and six palo cortados – including a number of wines that are hard to get (the Amontillado Olvidado I have never tried). More importantly, they are all available in bottle or glass, making it easy to try these unique wines and pair them with Bibo’s brilliant Andalucian cooking.
Bienvenido, Mr Garcia.
