    Valdespino and the Voyage of a Thousand Barrels

Valdespino, one of the oldest wineries in Jerez de la Frontera, plays host to history. Established in 1264, the brand has been a silent witness to centuries of stories and transformations, remaining resilient and steadfast in its passion for wine. The move of 25,000 barrels of their soleras from the old bodegas to a new facility, taking two and a half careful years, perhaps best epitomizes Valdespino’s dedication. A testament to their meticulousness, it ensured the quality and integrity of their age-old solera system, vouching for the authentic, distinct taste of their wines. This tale of preservation is perhaps the most telling about Valdespino’s character - a brand unyielding in its commitment to uphold tradition and quality.
