Notes of plums, raisins and chocolate.
Unctuous and soft on the palate, with a long aftertaste. A vigorous and balanced wine.
With you since 1821
It begins in 1821, when Benigno Barbadillo y Ortigüela (originally from Covarrubias, Burgos), accompanied by his cousin Manuel López Barbadillo, returned to Spain after having made his fortune in Mexico and after declaring Aztec independence from the Spanish empire.
He settled in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and acquired his first winery, El Toro, a paradigm of popular Andalusian architecture and witness to the origins of Barbadillo.
Benigno imprinted his own style on everything he did with the obsession of offering excellent quality wines. Under his management, the winery began to rapidly distribute wines to different parts of Spain, and exported the first Jerez casks to the United Kingdom and America, taking advantage of the river and sea routes that departed from Sanlúcar.
Year 1827 represented a milestone for the winery, since Barbadillo sent its first manzanilla casks to Philadelphia. The success was such that months later Barbadillo launched “Pastora” on the market, the first and then the only bottled chamomile in the world.
Benigno died in 1837 and his first-born son, Manuel, took the reins of the business and in 1954 formally established the company that is today known as Bodegas Barbadillo.
Barbadillo is a 100% family winery and is one of the oldest family businesses in Spain.
