Bodegas Barbadillo was founded in 1821. For two hundred years the family has been devoted to making quality wine with respect for tradition and a passion for innovation. This enduring commitment has earned Barbadillo its place as the foremost specialist in all Sherry styles, the main creator of new categories in the region, and the leader in worldwide sales. Their work to advance wine culture brings pleasure to the table while also contributing to our local communities and to protecting the environment. Together with their team of professionals, the seventh generation at Barbadillo is dedicated to ensuring the future of this legacy.
The origin of the winery is in Sanlucar de Barrameda. This colorful town, with a history going back thousands of years to the semi-mythical land of Tartessus— and through Phoenician, Greek, Roman, and Moorish civilizations—was at the forefront of exploration and trade during the 15th-17th centuries. Both Columbus and Magellan sailed from here.
Much later, in the 19th century, winemakers discovered that Sanlucar had the ideal microclimate for producing and aging the fine wines of the region. Today both Manzanilla and Barbadillo are inseparable from Sanlucar.
