Bodega Real Tesoro: Bodegas Real Tesoro Valdespino is much more than a bodega. Here you will be offered the opportunity to discover the fundamental pillars of Jerez culture: the passion for fine wine, horses and art.
In this guided tour we'll start by visiting the central patio with its magnificent collection of baroque works of art, the Bodega de Lola where Tio Mateo Sherry is produced, the bottling plant where from a balcony you will be able to observe the process undergone by the wine from the moment it enters the plant until it leaves, ready to be sold.
Next we'll visit the Bodega's stud where Spanish thoroughbred horses are bred. You'll have plenty of time to admire these magnificent animals and to visit a collection of antique harnesses and carriages.
Next we'll visit Gran Bodega Valedespino with its 25,000 casks of American Oak, one of the largest wine -cellars in the area. Here you'll learn all about the different types of sherry and the famous solera and criadera system. Finally we'll visit the Bodega's Art gallery where you can see over 100 engravings by Picasso as well as works by Chillida, Miró, Zuluoaga, Tàpies, Dalí and many other contemporary artists. The visit will end with a wine-tasting.
