Venue of the month: González Byass Winery, Jerez
NEWSLETTER – JUNE 17
It was in 1835 when a young andalusian founded González Byass
and started a long, and passion-filled journey, dedicated to the world of wine
Tío Pepe was the first fino sherry to reach England in the mid-19th century,
and it gradually gained recognition on other markets.
The iconic bottled dressed up as Tío Pepe has been admired, depicted and acknowledged
by artists and famous names all over the world, helping to promote the international
brand image, which is present today in over 102 countries, and is probably
one of Spain’s most recognized brands.
The González Byass Winery is a unique and striking venue in the heart of Jerez de la Frontera. Founded in 1835, the winery is in fact a complex of vine shaded streets, warehouses,
historic gardens and stunning settings near the Alcazar of Jerez
and the main churches of the city.
