(At the time dry, Fino sherries were enjoyed only by a very few locals in Jerez). Later, Manuel sent a couple of barrels of his uncle’s new, dry wine over to his London agent, one Robert Byass. The future company partner was sceptical: “We shall see what can be done with the very, very pale wine that you so highly recommend”.
