Good visit, full of history

Having been to Tio Pepe before I found Domecq more interesting and less commercialized, lots of more history and the testing was better.

The Pedro Domecq Bodega is a really interesting experience that can be arranged shortly before visiting. Our guide Mercedes spoke excellent English and gave us a very in-depth guided tour around the bodega explaining how the different types of sherry and brandy were produced and how they are stored, filled and marketed under the different brand names. There was also... More

My partner and I went to Jerez on a day trip from Cadiz where we were staying. Our hotel receptionist rang the Bodega before we left and established that I t wasn't necessary to book a tour, but that was in March so best to find out first as they may be busier later in the year. There was a... More

I had an absolutely fabulous time at the Bodegas Fundador Pedro Domecq, in fact it was the social highlight of my holiday at Jerez de la Frontera. Alex, the lovely English speaking guide, was very thorough in her historical recount of events leading up to the modern day bodega. She also gave us a detailed description of the various chemical...

Recently the facilities for touring this bodega has been improved. There is now an excellent museum which shows the history and artefacts of sherry and brandy production at this oldest of establishments in Jerez. There were only four of us on the tour which made for a very personal and excellent experience. Our guide, Alex, was very informative and she... More

Truly, this is one of the worst experiences you could have in Jerez. Real bad service, uncooperative and without any interest in the customer qellbeign.

The tour guide was interesing and knew her stuff. Personally I could have done without the film first but it's a good way to keep people in one place until everyone has arrived. The bodega is huge with lovely architecture. For me, the sherry wasn't as good as other brands and we paid extra to try to VORS (special reserve)... More

One of the oldest sherry houses in Jerez, the Bodegas Fundador Domecq tour is a combination of three separate brands, including Harvey's. The tour was fun and informative- the cavernous ageing rooms are very impressive, as is the garden planted after the visit of a Spanish monarch. At the end of the tour, there is the opportunity to taste a... More

The oldest sherry producer (and inventor of brandy, as it turns out) in town. Less overrun than Tio Pepe next door with lots of history, charming guide and, of course, a couple of tastings at the end. Great value at €10 per person...and a total must.

This was an informative tour and a thorough tasting. I enjoy wine but didn't know much about sherry. The woman who led the tasting was nice enough to grant my wish. I had tasted some sherries before leaving on this trip and had liked amontillado the best. It was not originally a part of the tasting but when I asked... More
