That article sounds realistic. You can't buy wine in supermarkets. You had 2,700 stores in NYC where you could have bought all the wine you wanted.

A lot of people also buy wine through the mail.

It's easy: Manzanilla comes from Sanlucar de barrameda, so you want to find one with that D.O.. The Manzanilla is a fortified wine (as are all Sherries) & I'm not sure if such wines have a D.O.
Just buy one from Sanlucar and drink it very cold (w/mejillones or boquerones or a similar tapa). In Madrid, VillaRosa on Plaza Santa Ana used to have it from the Baril, the best Manzanilla I have tried.

I like that street ( echegaray ) .. Very narrow and shabby , but interesting . I think the best sherry ( Jerez ) I ever had was with MM at a Suma Flamenca event . We were surrounded by some very famous flamenco stars at an " event party " . They had a guy in his typically smart Andalucian suit pouring a "fino" from the barrel then from a ladle way up high above the sherry glass . I have a great photo of that .Really expert stuff . Delicious ... and the food was wonderful ( tapas ) .

I was just wondering which manzanilla the little old man recommended. I've tried all the best known ones.

I had a bottle of La Guita in my apartment when I was recently in Sevilla. When it was time to leave to get my plane to Madrid, I had about a big glass worth left in the bottle. Not wanting to waste it, I poured it into one of those small individual plastic orange juice bottles that was empty. I figured I could drink it on the plane.

Wouldn't you know that my bag was opened in security, and they zeroed right in on that little bottle all the way down at the bottom of the bag. The inspector said I had to drink it right there. As I started to sip it slowly, a police officer who was there figured out what it was. He said I could sit down and drink it. He stood there with a big smile on his face watching me drink La Guita from an orange juice bottle.
