Segment-3: Wine Education - Authentic Tio Pepe Fino "Sherry is a Wine, not a Liquor!" - Felipe González-Gordon Terry
 
03: Felipe González-Gordon Terry, 5th generation Winegrower, González Byass, sets the record straight. The oh-so-dry Tio Pepe is lightly golden in color; The aromas are distinctly reminiscent of freshly baked bread and almonds. Serve well chilled in a tulip-shaped wine glass, not too much at a time, as the perfect aperitif with canapés and tapas, as well as with main course dishes of Asian-inspired cuisine, seafood and all fish-based dishes, caviar, oysters, or tuna carpaccio.

Segment-4: Wine Education - Gonzalez Byass Offers Wide Range of Authentic Sherries from Dry Finos to Rich, Nutty 30-Year Old Dessert Wines, since 1835 - Felipe González-Gordon Terry
 
04: After fermentation, classification and fortification, the Palomino grape must bound for Tio Pepe enters the Tip Pepe Solera, where it will age for an average of five years. During this period the wine develops under a layer of years called "flor," which will give the wine its distinctive clean, fresh aromas and bone dry savoury character.
