The Domaine
One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen, a Norwegian gone native with a passion for top quality sherry with 15 years experience at Osborne.

After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries.

"The PX has all the typical unctuous viscosity of the style, bright with fruitcake and cold tea flavours. At 20 years of age, it appears refreshingly well-balanced." Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter, Dec 2010:

Food Pairing
Ideal with chocolates and chocolate based desserts, ice creams and pastries as well as certain cheeses. Best served at 10-12 degrees C.
