Barrel Selected Sherries & Wine Imports
Alexander Jules is my label of barrel selected sherries. I search the Sherry Triangle for soleras I love in unique and great bodegas, tasting each barrel in the solera, marking with chalk those I feel to be the most complex and elegant, or those that reflect the profile I would like to bring out from within the solera. All bottlings are en rama, being only gently filtered or entirely unfiltered and, starting in 2014, no sulfites are added.
Being based in the USA, I also import wines and cider, my focus being on rare grapes and less commonly seen regions, though first and foremost beautiful wines. I am drawn to areas with interesting soils, climates and grape varieties, and to wine growers looking to create exceptional, balanced wines, reflective of their origins, who tend their land in a way that promotes a vibrant, healthy soil and vineyard ecology.
