At first one gets a dry white wine  from the fermentation of the type of vine palomino with an alcoholic content of 11 to 13 per cent. This young wine is graded up with spirit of wine on the desired alcoholic content and filled into a 500 litres barrel. At first for a year this wine matures. After that it is improved in a special method, the "Solera (y Criadera)" system and refined by the bonus of exquisite Pedro Ximénez. This awards an easy middle sweet character to this sherry.

The label Cuesta has its origin in the famous sherry house José de of La Cuesta which is in the possession of the Caballero family since 1932. Furthermore the Caballero family has the prestige wine-growing estate Viña Herminia which already founded its first wine cellars at 1830 in Spain. Because of the knowledge of its cellarers and the constant claim only to create best wines and Sherries of the highest class the family Caballero is known for highest qualities.
