    A Toast to Savored History

Valdespino Oloroso Don Gonzalo VOS NV belongs to a lineage steeped in tradition. Valdespino, one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, can trace its wine-growing history back to 1264. The Don Gonzalo VOS NV pays homage to Gonzalo Valdespino, one of the original founders. The Solera system was started in the late 19th century, the solera from which this wine is drawn is specially selected due to the unique quality of the casks used, which results in a wine of almost indescribable complexity, depth, and character. With an average age of 20 years, and limited production, this VOS (Very Old Sherry) is a nod to the past and a testament to the craft developed over centuries.
