Bodegas César Florido was founded in 1887 and is currently maintained by César Florido, a descendant of the founder. The winery is the oldest bodega in the town of Chipiona, located near Sanlúcar within the Jerez denomination of origin. Bodegas César Florido is one of only two bodegas in Chipiona that are still operating outside of the cooperative. Chipiona is an area dedicated to growing Moscatel, but most of the wine produced here is sold in bulk to the Sherry houses of Jerez, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar. Bodegas César Florido, bu contrast, is one of the few bodegas that is estate bottling.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Moscatel Dorado is produced from 15-year-old Moscatel grapes grown on sandy soils. The grapes are picked very ripe, the must starts fermenting and then fortified to 17.5% alcohol, and the wine spends two years in chestnut barrels. It has 215 grams of residual sugar. It is a young Muscat of golden color and a clean fruity nose of orange blossom, honeysuckle, mint and fresh Muscat grape notes with a liqueur touch. The palate is sweet, without perceivable acidity and a pleasant bitter finish. Drink it fresh with fruit desserts. This is superb value for money. Drink 2013-2015.
