We took the catamaran across from Cadiz to visit this small bodega. What a jewel! It was just the two of us and we were escorted around the bodega by a friendly and very informative guide (feel bad that I have forgotten his name). We were encouraged to take our time and ask questions, it was such a relaxed and informal experience with no sense that the information was being reeled off from some memorized sheet such as you get in larger bodegas. The guide was passionate about the sherry making process and helped us understand about the complex nature of sherry production. The tour ended with a tasting of the sherry ranges and one brandy. After explaining the different qualities in each our guide left us at the table to finish enjoying our glasses along with the accompanying nibbles with no pressure to buy (although we did buy because it was great sherry and an excellent price).

Very interesting, warm and personal explanation of how sherry is made.
This bodega may produce thousands of gallons of sherry each year but it is the smallest in El Puerto de Santa Maria and this is shown in the family touch of the tour.
We toured the Osborne bodega in El Puerto a few years ago, which was also very good, and a few wineries elsewhere over the years but I have to say that this tour was the best we've had.
The tasting at the end with 6 different sherries and a brandy was great fun and gave us a chance to chat with the others on the tour, as well as discuss further with the tour guide. It ended up a great social occasion, although we were pleased our hotel was so close, for a lie down after 6 generous glasses of sherry and one of brandy!
The bodega's bar is next door, and called Bespoke.

We visited this bodegas having read the excellent reviews, and it fully lived up to them! The guide explained the sherry making process in detail, taking time to answer all our questions along the way - it was very informative, their passion for sherry really comes across, and the hour flew by. The tasting was great value, and we sampled the six sherries they produce, ranging from very dry to very sweet. In particular, the Fino is the nicest we have tried throughout our holiday! It's a small, traditional family business, and this comes across during the tour, everyone was very friendly with people taking time out to find us and chat to us during the tasting - it was all very relaxed and we were able to take our time tasting the sherries. They also own the Bespoke restaurant, which is next door, and this is well worth a visit as well - a great experience, and one of the highlights of our holiday - highly recommended!

We took a guided tour in this bodega and learned a lot about how typical sherry wines are made. It was overall very interesting and the tasting at the end would satisfy wine lovers. They make you try 6 different varieties and you can really feel the difference between tastes.

Great tour by an English speaking guide. It starts around 11.15 but check the times as they do vary. The tours are in English or Spanish and cost 10 euro but its worth this as you get a good chance to taste all the different sherry at the end and tappa.
We chose this rather than the big brand alternative tours and we feel this was the best choice as more personal and very informative. You can purchase any of the products at the end either already bottled or straight from the barrel. Please go and support this place as there are not many left. Its close to the ferry crossing terminal to Cadiz and lots of parking options round there. We caught the CAT ferry to Cadiz after the tour.
