Still in family hands the Bodegas is still located in the cellars of Doña Carmen García-Mier in the Square of Cruz Vieja in the centre of Jerez. Nearly 45 years on from the founding of the Bodegas the Soleras are maintained with wine from 7 hectares of vineyard in Jerez Superior on fine albariza soils. A tremendously traditional Bodegas, fermentation of the wines is still carried out in American oak before being placed into the Soleras.
