Jerez Sherry Tour Private


Private Sherry Tour in Jerez to discover the world famous Jerez wine region, where Sherry wines are produced since hundreds of years.

Jerez is one of the better known Spanish wines, and its production can be traced back to around 200 b.C. It was the Phoenicians that introduced wine making in Cadiz and who started the tradition of the Jerez wines.

This wine tasting tour in Jerez includes a typical visit to a Sherry Wine Cellar. You will be guided through the rows upon rows of casks, getting to know about the criadera and solera methods used to blend different vintages, and the difference between the dry finos, amontillados and olorosos. The wine tour in Jerez ends in the sacristía – the “sacristy” – with a tasting of the various wines, traditionally drawn from the barrel by the venenciador, using a cup attached to a slender rod.

This Sherry Wine Tour has an approximate duration of 8 hours for a minimum of two people. The final itinerary for this Jerez wine tour may vary depending on vineyards availability and your own preferences.

We can also organize tours for bigger groups and different itineraries. Why not a visit to the Royal Equestrian School?

Sherry Wine Cellars in Jerez

Osborne Winery


The Osborne winery was founded in 1772 in El Puerto de Santa María and is considered one of the oldest companies in the world and the oldest in Spain. It’s symbol is the famous black bull visible in many Spanish roads.

The Osborne bull, one of the most iconic symbols of Spain, was first designed and erected in Cadiz in 1956 as an advertisement of the Osborne sherry. They were black with the brand name “Veterano” painted on them in red. When the Spanish law decreed that there could be no advertising near major roads, the brand name was painted over in black but the bulls stayed because by then they were regarded as a symbol of Spain and considered to have an aesthetic or cultural significance.

González Byass Winery


At González Byass, you can view such hallowed cellars as Los Apósteles and La Constancia. You might even catch a glimpse of the famous Sherry-sipping mice, which have returned after a few years’ absence following some repair work in the cellar (a glass and a miniature ladder are set out for their indulgence). You will learn how a cask from the private supply of dry Sherry kept by José de la Peña, the winery founder’s uncle, was shipped to England, giving birth to a legend: Tío Pepe, the best-selling aperitif wine in the world.

Domecq Winery


Bodegas Domecq is the oldest winery in Jerez with more than at 269 years. In this winery you will learn how an undelivered shipment of wine spirits originally destined for Holland was left to mellow in old Sherry casks and metamorphosed into the first Jerez Brandy in 1874: Fundador.

You’ll also see the touching memorial to the late José Ignacio Domecq (known to all as “The Nose”), who was armed with a formidable proboscis and an uncanny knack for using it. No one could sniff out the qualities of a wine better than he.
