A Once in a Lifetime Tasting: Three Centuries of Bodegas Osborne's Sherries

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 6:30 pm, $75

EXTREMELY LIMITED SEATING, ONLY 25 SPOTS AVAILABLE! We have never put together a tasting of wines this rare beforeStarting in 2013, the Osborne family commercially released the RARE and VORS collection of their sherries for the first time in many decades. These bottlings are extremely limited, and far exceed the 30 year minimum parameters for being labeled VORS; indeed, many of the soleras were begun in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Founded in 1772, Osborne is one the most prestigious and oldest bodegas in all of Spain. Always a family company, today Osborne is run by its 7th generation with sherry at the heart of the business.

Before the Osborne family decided to make these wines commercially available in the United States, renowned wine writer Peter Liem visited the bodega and wrote:

“These are sherries of highly individual personality, numbering among the finest wines of the region...As with the other rare wines in this bodega, one has the sense of a fragile treasure—something that could be in danger of becoming extinct. Let us hope that Osborne does whatever it takes to ensure that this is not the case.”
