Ramiro Ibañez and Willy Pérez are reinterpreting the history and the present of this legendary, yet often misunderstood, region in southern Spain - Sherry Triangl. In addition to managing their own personal projects, they share an interest in unravelling and recovering the history of the wines and soils of Jerez. In 2017 they decided to recover the historic and renowned brand Manuel Antonio De la Riva, which had belonged to that family, owner of 53 hectares of vineyard in Macharnudo.
