About Xeco Wines - SHERRY by Ben Howkins
Made in a unique way, matured in cellars dating back to the age of the Conquistadores, and bursting with a panoply of sun-drenched flavours, Sherry has – due to a succession of scandals and bad luck in the 1970s – been maligned and misunderstood.
But the Sherry scene is set for seismic change. With a series of new styles, new vineyards and a dynamic new crop of cellar masters, this wine is creating a revolution in the world’s restaurants that can’t be ignored.
Ben Howkins, in colourful words and equally evocative pictures, delves deep into Sherry’s fascinating story and reveals why it is set to come back into our lives with a magnificent flourish!

About Xeco Wines
Next Generation Sherry!
Sherry!? Isn’t that what grannies drink? Isn’t that what they put in a trifle? You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers…
We reckon that simple yet highly sophisticated drink you’ve been looking for all your life has been under your nose the whole time… So hold tight, drinks lovers! And welcome to the world of XECO - A Next-Generation Sherry.
The brainchild of three Fino friends
XECO is the brainchild of three 30-something 'fino friends' who have long shared a love of fine sherry - and frustration that this love wasn't shared by their friends. The solution? Find better friends (kidding!) OR - find a way to bring a ‘Next Generation’ sherry to their friends and the world, finally giving this marvelous drink some long-overdue recognition.
In early 2016 they set out to create a new brand of Sherry to put a contemporary edge on an age-old product, and in doing so help to dispel some of the myths around the category while encouraging a new generation of discerning drinkers to give Sherry a second look. Read more about XECO on our blog.
