Flaxen pale to gossamer golden in color, the Fino ranges from very dry to dry. It features an almond-reminiscent bouquet. While it is delicate and light, it is fully satisfying. Always serve chilled.

This is the lightest and driest Fino. Produced near the seacoast at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, it has an almost salty tang. Serve chilled. It is an especially good accompaniment to shellfish.

The richly amber Amontillado is brisk and medium dry. Nutty to the palate, it features a light, pungent bouquet. Serve chilled, on the rocks, or at room temperature.

Oloroso (o-lo-ro-so)
Featuring a deeply golden color, the Oloroso is gently sweet with a full-bodied, walnut-accented flavor. It is fully fragrant. Serve at room temperature or on the rocks.

Cream Sherry
Dark gold to velvety brown in color, our heavy-bodied Cream Sherry features a scentful bouquet and is luscious, smooth, and richly sweet in flavor. Serve at room temperature or over ice.

What They've Been Saying About Hartley & Gibson's

Hartley & Gibson's: A Success Story
"Jack Poust & Company, (New York) the importer of this phenomenon, has taken HARTLEY & GIBSON'S from practically nowhere up to the top rank of imported Sherries."
— "The Wine Trade" by Ed Everett

When It Comes To Sherries, Harvey's Isn't the Only Cream of the Crop
"While Bristol Cream was the sweetest, smoothest, and creamiest, HARTLEY & GIBSON'S had more complex flavors, tighter structure and a better developed bouquet. Both are fine wines though in different styles. I'd call it a draw except in price." 
— The Baltimore Sun, "Wine" by Michael Dresser

In a Class by Themselves
"There are imported sherries and there are imported sherries, but none compare in popularity and price or quality to Hartley & Gibson's sherries. They are in a class by themselves."
— Bay View Magazine, San Francisco

"My house brand is Hartley & Gibson's."
— San Francisco Chronicle, "One Man's Wine" by Larry Walker
