Substitute for Sherry?

I'm making Bourdain's mushroom soup (from the email a few days ago) and I don't really want to buy sherry for it as I rarely use it.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a substitute? Obviously it adds a lot of flavour so I'd prefer not to substitute broth.

Just as a reminder:
Bourdain's Mushroom Soup
6 tablespoons butter
1 onion, thinly sliced
12 ounces button mushrooms, halved
4 cups chicken stock
1 sprig parsley
2 ounces sherry
salt and pepper
