A pale and delicate, light-dry sherry that is light in color. Commonly served cold as an aperitif, many consider this Spanish wine to be the world's finest sherry. Finos are excellent when young.
Produced by Bodegas Valderrama, which was originally owned by Rumasa and has been assimilated into Grupo Garvey. Rumasa is derived from the name of Ruiz-Mateos. Its history can be traced back to 1857 when Zoilo Ruiz-Mateos Rodicio established a smalled business in Rota, Spain. In 1930 his son, Zoilo Ruiz-Mateos Camacho, set up business in Jerez. Later Don Camacho's youngest son, Jose-Maria, formed a group of companies that became the Rumasa empire—becoming an enormous, powerful force in the sherry world.
