Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, with a history of Sherry production going back six centuries. Back in 1264, Alfonso Valdespino was one of 24 knights who fought against the Arabs for the city of Jerez with King Alfonso X. As a reward for his efforts he was given land that formed the basis of the bodega. Today Valdespino belongs to the Estevez family, who purchased the bodega in 1999.
We will be joined by Ignacio Lopez of Liberty Wines who will present Bodegas Valdespino and taste some amazing sherry with us. The three Sherries we will try are:
Tio Diego Amontillado
El Candado Pedro Ximenez
Tickets are £50 and include a bottle of all three, delivered to your door.
