Grape Variety

Palomino is a white wine grape from Andalucia, southwestern Spain. It is the grape variety used to make Sherry, and occupies almost 95 percent of the total vineyard area in Jerez. The variety has also made its way 800 miles (1300km) southwest of Jerez, to the Canary Islands, where it is known as Listan Blanco.
