One of Sherry’s most iconic wines. Aged for an average of 12 years in the solera. The Sangre y Trabajadero solera began in the town of Jerez in the 1800s as the solera of a cooper whose trabajadero, a cooper’s yard where butts are constructed, was located on Calle Sangre, the street where the butchers were located. Named after this location, the oloroso was a favorite of the butchers and other Jerezanos alike. The solera was first sold to Bodega Lacave in Cadiz before being sold to Bodega Cuvillo in Puerto. After Cuvillo went bankrupt in 1982, Gutierrez Colosia purchased the solera. To this day, new ships built in the bay of Cadiz are ceremonially launched not with a bottle of Champagne, but with a bottle of Sangre y Trabajadero.
