Pedro Ximenez Sherry

Lusciously sweet, fortified Spanish wine with velvety texture, notes of dried raisins, figs, and caramel.

Pedro Ximénez is a luxuriantly sweet Spanish sherry boasting flavors of dried fruit, toffee, honey, nut, chocolate, and coffee in a velvety wine that’s as pleasingly decadent as it is complex! It’s perfect paired with rich, sweet treats and, when on its own in a glass, it can be enjoyed as an indulgent dessert on its own.

Pedro Ximénez Sherry, affectionately known as PX Sherry, is a decadent sweet fortified wine originating from the Andalusia region of Spain. Pedro Ximénez grapes undergo sun-drying until sugars are concentrated, then it’s partially fermented, fortified, and aged in a layered solera system, an ingenious method that ensures wine quality consistency. A deep mahogany color, this fortified wine features notes of toffee, fig, chocolate, and dried fruit. There’s a Pedro Ximénez Sherry for every budget, so if you’re exploring classic dessert wines, don’t miss it.

Fun Fact: Pedro Ximénez is often confused with a varietal found in Argentina called Pedro Giménez but grape experts say they’re not related.
