"One of The World's Oldest and Most Outstanding Sherry Producers". The Valdespino family have been involved in the sherry trade since 1430, making Valdespino the oldest sherry Bodegas (Houses). In 1883, Valdespino became a purveyor of sherry to the Royal House of Spain and since 1932 to the Royal House of Sweden, testament to the quality of Valdespino. In 1999, the Estevez family, also from Jerez, bought the Valdespino Bodega, thus keeping it in family hands and ensuring that quality and tradition are maintained. Sherry is a fortified wine made mostly from the Palomino grape and matured using the 'Criaderas and Solera' system.
The production region of the wines protected by the Jerez-Xeres-Sherry D.O. is located in the south of Spain. The area known as the 'Sherry Triangle' is formed by the three different towns: Jerez de la Frontera, Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda.
We are delighted to have a long association with the Valdespino family; on a practical front, the ability to now import the 375ml bottles means that we can cater even more effectively to the on-premise trade.
