It is, therefore, the region known as Marco de Jerez, cradle of these wines, the place of origin of Sherry vinegar that, like Sherry wines, is aged following the traditional system of criaderas and solera, a genuine and prolonged aging that sometimes exceeds ten or twenty years and that explains the richness and high concentration that characterize this product.
The vinegar for bottling is extracted exclusively from the row of barrels located at ground level, called solera, which contains the oldest vinegars, and which in the kitchen leads to elaborations like this Cauliflower mozarabic dressing with dates, a recipe offered by the Regulatory Council of Sherry Wines, Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Vinagre de Jerez.
