This refers, literally, to the drawing off of part of the contents of each butt in a tier. When brandy is drawn fron one tier, it is used to replenish the butts in the tier below. The brandy drawn from the lowest, solera tier is used for bottling and later consumption.


A corner of a bodega where its most prized wines and brandies are kept. It is usually furnished with a table and charis to provide a meeting point for connoisseurs.


Those select butts upon which a true Brandy de Jerez is founded. The 'saca' taken from these - never more than a third of the total at any one time are replaced with brandy from the first and thus the eldest of the solera's "criaderas". When stacked, the solera barrels are normally at the bottom and thus on the ground (suelo) and hence they get their name.
