From Sanlúcar de Barrameda and instantly recognisable by sherry lovers the world over.

Valdespino has wine making roots that stretch back to the 1400’s. Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, if not the oldest. Its history dates back to the 13th century, when King Alfonso X rewarded the knight Alfonso Valdespino for his help in liberating Jerez from the Moors. Valdespino was given a parcel of vineyards and started making wine.

They are the only bodega to make single vineyard sherries and are also renowned for their VOS (Very Old Sherries) with over 20 years of ageing and VORS (Very Old Rare Sherries), with over 30 years of ageing.

The Palomino grapes for the Manzanilla come from Valdespino’s single vineyard (Pago) Miraflores. The white ‘albariza’ soil is typical of the region, and comes from a layer of earth rich in marine fossils. Thanks to the high content of calcic carbonate, its clayey texture does not split; it is soft when wet and absorbs rain like a sponge, and when it dries out it forms a layer that holds in the water, preventing evaporation. This reserve of moisture encourages the vine roots to develop, some reaching to more than four metres depth, allowing them to use this water reserve when needed.


An iconic, single vineyard Manzanilla from Sanlúcar de Barrameda has a very dry, light, crisp and slightly ‘salty’ taste.

Pale straw yellow coloured, with a fresh and intriguing on the nose with big green apples to the fore
