The most undervalued, underappreciated wine in the world?

A favorite aperitif wine? A super cold Manzanilla sherry served in a delicate tulip glass. A few sips of this bone-dry and briny wine with a some nibbles of Marcona almonds: perfection. So pleased to read that Eric Asimov agrees and that there has been a surge in sherry’s popularity.

Tonight, flipping through an October 1952 issue of House & Garden, I came across an ad for sherry… from New York. Check it out below (and two others I couldn’t help but include. Did you know in the 1950′s Asti was the second most visited destination in California, after Disneyland? Me neither, but Wikipedia says so.)

And as an aside, Why? you may ask, was I flipping through a 1952 edition of House & Garden? Looking for inspiration for some art-making, of course. We both have been quite busy lately creating. Check out my online gallery here, and if you’re in L.A. next week, come to the opening of Mock Ups, a show He is featured in. Free wine in plastic cups. We may smuggle in a bottle of sherry.
