Sherry Bodega Visit: Bodegas Grupo Estevez

In September 2010 I visited several sherry bodegas. Here are pictures and a few notes from Bodegas Grupo Estevez.

(One of the warehouses is named for flamenco dancer Lola Flores.)

  • Tio Mateo, Agostino, Tesoro, La Gita are some of their brands
  • They used to have several bodegas, centralized them all to the one we visited 20 years ago
  • One bodega named after flamenco dancer Lola Flores 
  • La Gita manzanilla from Sanlucar is the only manzanilla that has a production date on the bottle- should help us Americans know when its too old to buy
  • Inocente Fino is fermented in the barrel not in stainless tanks.
