Below are the bodegas of Jerez and Sanlucar de Barameda which we recommend. We are happy to reserve tickets for
bodega tours, arrange private tours or organise a day excursion with private guide visiting various bodegas. Please
inform reception of your requirements.
Gonzalez Byass, Jerez
The bodegas of Gonzalez Byass were established in 1835 when the company‟s founder D. Manuel Gonzalez Angel
formed a successful partnership with Mr Robert Blake Byass, who had been the new company‟s Agent in London.
Together they built what has become today‟s well-known company, internationally recognized for the care devoted to its sherries and brandies and for the high quality standards maintained across its wide product range.
The company is still directed by the fourth and fifth generations of the Gonzalez family, preserving the heritage,
traditions and culture of sherry and brandy production for over 160 years. Enjoy a tour of the „bodegas‟ where you will taste a selection dry and sweet sherries, and learn about the heritage and science of this great Andalucian tradition.
Bodegas Lustau, Jerez
Bodegas Lustau is probably the most important bodega in Spain. Lustau was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-
Berdejo. Lustau has received numerous international awards including the “International Wine Challenge” in London
and the “Concours Mondial” in Brussels. There wines can be enjoyed at many of the best restaurants and hotels on the five continents, from Japan to the United States and from South Africa to Lapland.
We can arrange private tours with Almudena de la Maza, the daughter of the Count of Maza and PR for the bodega.
This is by prior appointment only. Please ask reception to arrange a visit.
Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana, Sanlucar de Barameda
Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana is a family owned sherry-maker founded in 1792 and based in Sanlucar de Barameda. It is
run by Javier Hidalgo who has spent many years tirelessly promoting their range to more than 30 overseas markets.
Hidalgo make some glorious sherries aged in the dark, quiet surroundings of the well-ventilated bodega like the
Amontillado Viejo, Oloroso Viejo, Palo Cortado Viejo, but the mainstay of the range is La Gitana, a crisp, savoury,
bone dry manzanilla. If you are planning to visit Sanlucar to sample some of the best shellfish in Spain, a visit to this
bodega might be of interest. Please speak to reception in advance if you wish to visit his bodega.
Bodegas Tradicion, Jerez
Bodegas Tradición was created with the aim of giving back the value and respect to the oldest noble wines and brandy from Jerez, by means of using the traditional methods of maturation which have provided our region with a worldwide recognition for centuries. The starting point for this project came out from the idea of rescuing and giving continuity to tradition of one of the oldest family-owned wineries from Jerez, with over three hundred and fifty years of history. The origins of Bodegas Tradicion have links with the legendary brand CZ – the abbreviation for Cabeza de Aranda y Zarco- which is considered the oldest Jerez brand from Jerez. The Bodega also boasts a marvelous art collection including El Greco´s, Goya´s, Murillo.
