In 1852, Bodega Hijos de Rainera Pérez Marín was founded in the city of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This small area near Cádiz in Andalusia, Spain has a level of humidity and cool temperatures that makes it the only place where Manzanilla sherries can be produced. This unique sherry draws its name from its taste that is reminiscent of chamomile tea, which is called "manzanilla" in Spanish. The company is focused on the production of its special straw-yellow Manzanilla wine, La Guita.
La Guita is made using 100% Palomino grapes grown in the vineyards of Sanlúcar. Once harvested, pressed, and fermented, the white wine is entered into the criaderas and solera system to undergo four years of ageing. What makes La Guita special is the layer of yeast that appears on the top of the wine in the barrel. This yeast protects the wine while interacting with it, protecting the wine from contact with the air and giving special characteristics and flavour.
The name "La Guita" has two meanings in Spanish. The first is "string", which is backed up by the piece of twine which is attached to every bottle. The second meaning is "cash". According to a story told by the founder, whenever visitors would come asking for his Manzanilla wine, he would ask if they had cash (guita) - and the name stuck.
