The Australian finalist of the Tio Pepe World challenge is Mario Lapietra! Congratulations from the team at TWC and Tio Pepe Wines. Mario will join the other international finalists in Jerez, Spain for the Grand Final next month! The TÍO PEPE SHERRY CHALLENGE is an international mixology contest for creating cocktails with Sherry Wines, with over 400 bar professionals participating worldwide.

TWC are the proud Australian distributors of Tio Pepe & Gonzalez Byass wines. González Byass was founded in Jerez in 1835 by Manuel Maria González. At the young age of 23, he decided to dedicate himself to the production and commercialisation of Sherry wines. In 1844 the first barrels of Tio Pepe were exported to London.

The beautifully dry taste of José Angel’s wine proved a great success and in 1849 Manuel named what is now the world’s best-selling Fino after its creator, (tio being Spanish for uncle) – TIO PEPE.
