The Palo Cortado Mystery, Revealed?

This trailer is just enough to whet your appetite for the much anticipated documentary “El misterio del Palo Cortado”, a film created by award winning Spanish director José Luis López Linares and famed Spanish filmmaker Antonio Saura.

This film delves into the world of the rare type of sherry known as Palo Cortado, which is formed when the special flor that covers the base wine destined to become a manzanilla, fino or amontillado, somehow disappears, and the wine starts aging oxidatively.

Filmed in part at Jerez winery Bodegas Tradición, with the participated of noted Spanish wine experts including Josep Roca (El Celler de Can Roca), María José Huertas (La Terraza del Casino), Antonio Flores (Gonzalez Byass) and José María Quirós (Bodegas Tradición), this film is scheduled to premier worldwide during the Culinary Cinema section of the 65th Berlinale film festival in Berlin, this coming February 11th.
