The origins of our winery date back to 1765. However, in the 20 century Palomino & Vergara was founded by Juan Vergara and Juan Palomino. Later these wineries, became part of Rumasa which managed them successfully for more tan 20 years. Years later, the Company formed part of the first multinational of Jerez, John Harvey & Sons Ltd.
Finally, these wineries were bought in 1992 by José Paez Morilla, owner and a present Managing Director of “Bodegas Dios Baco, S.L.”. His only intention is to produce them in the difficult world of Sherry, with high quality productos, a limited production and with the same philosophy as when it was founded.
Our winery Dios Baco was built in 1848, more tan 150 years ago. It was part of a whole called “ The twelve Disciples” the same number as Christ’s disciples.
Nowdays ther are only three buildings: ”Bodega Dios Baco”, “Bodega la Cruz” and “Bodega Pio XII”, the fist one being the most significante and the one which gives its name to the three wineries.
Bodegas Dios Baco is composed of three warehouse hulls and a partition. We receive our visitors in "La Bodega de la Cruz" a wide and cozy stay that is sometimes used for selected events. In an adjoining room we have the Jerez museum that is contemplated at the end of the visit. First we went to "The Winery of Extraction" well known for having four underground wells where the wine was formerly stored and later "extracted". In this cellar we age the Sherry wine and expose the system of Soleras & Criaderas and the breeding of the Sherrys. We continue the tour in "The Winery of Bacchus" the most extensive and emblematic and where we age the Brandy.
After a tour of about an hour comes the time of the tasting. We have made a selection of 5 Sherrys (Fine - Amontillado - Oloroso Medium - Cream - PX) from the driest to the sweetest so that our visitors can put into practice everything exposed in the visit and check the nuances and differences in flavor And color of our Sherrys.
