The winery of Pedro Domecq is one of the most romantic in Spain.
This Sherry house was founded back in 1730, making it one of the oldest commercial establishments in the region. The winery produces an awesome 15 million liters of wine per year. 90% of production is exported, They now own about 2,500 acres in Jerez, 2,000 of which are in an area called Macharnudo, where the hillier terrain receives more of the cooling ocean breezes that help the grapes maintain their acidity.
Pedro Domecq became quite famous internationally not only for its classic sherries, but for Ignacio Domecq, called “The Nose” (for his almost superhuman sense of smell and tasting abilities). Don Ignacio died in 1997, and his son Beltrn Domecq is competently at the healm.
The bodega is called “La Mezquita”, the Mosque, and has gorgeous whitewashed walls and Moorish arches.
Pedro Domecq is a fabulous destination for the wine tourist, as its cellars are so atmospheric and the wines of such a high quality.
The Fino Dry a full-bodied fino with aromas of pear, almond, and apple, plus a touch of lemon on the palate. A bready note emerges on its crisp finish.
