I had a wonderful time visit parts of the Gonzales-Byass Sherry wine production and ageing facilities in Jerez de Frontera. A most stylish operation grown with pride over 150 years. Every corner of the property is groomed, cleaned, and upgraded with taste and purpose... Vines, orange trees, garden, fountains, several cellars and different bodegas, private Soleras, barrels signed by many... More

We turned up at 5:00 for the English tour and found it was a group of 40 (including several very young people) and there were only 6 English speakers. The rest were Spanish and it was a 2 language tour. You get taken 100 metres on a train, then walk to see some wine casks, then another 100 metres on... More

This is a huge complex, hence the train to get around to the gardens, brandy cellars and bodegas. Our tour guide has excellent English and impressed us by her knowledge and ability to answer lots of our questions. We enjoyed the fascinating history, the barrels inscribed with the names of famous visitors. The tasting was good and very well organized... More

Never been fond of that stuff, but this visit changed my mind. Luckily we parked round the corner so carrying the xx bottles purchased on site was not a big issue. Learned a lot about the soil, the grapes, the history, the production, and......now I know what Solera means. My highlight was a Whiskey "born in Scotland and matured in... More

Really interesting to learn about the soil type that the grapes grow in and how the wine/sherry is stored. The trip included a mini movie in a "shabby chic" cinema to show the history and a rather pointless trip in a mini-train - it would've been better if we could've walked it. But pay for the cheapest entry and don't... More

Very poor,guide was very good,but the tour not up to much,when you have seen one Sherry cask,then you have seen the lot! The sherry tasting was hopeless,two sherrys both of which you can buy in your local supermarket,so no new tastes there! All in all one trip to avoid.

The place is fantastic. History and a multinational built round family tradition, the company is still family owned. But the guided visit was cursory and lacking in enthusiasm. Maria (very good in herself) was very obviously under pressure to get the punters through the visit as quickly as possible.

Love the history of this place, walking round combined with the little train was a joy, so many famous just people have visited it was fun seeing who you could spot, felt the tasting was a bit of a let down, they could do more for this.

We had two days in Jerez and wanted to visit a sherry bodega but were put off by some of the negative reviews here. However, we opted for Gonzalez Byass/Tio Pepe and can't see what the negative reviews are about. It is probably the largest bodega in the region and the most visited and we went for the English-speaking 5pm... More
