And home to Harvey's Bristol Cream. Who knew? Our hostess was very bright, knowledgeable and friendly. Got an education to go along with the wine tasting.

Not that much to see the barrels but always great with new knowledge about sherry as well as tasting. Go for the standard package, the difference of 8 Euros to taste on VORS not well spent

We are a family of 4. We enjoyed the Fundador experience on December 22 (from 16:00-18:00) guided by a friendly, bilingual, very knowledgeable young lady. We were led through all the important and interesting parts of the facility. The guide made the tour!!! She was incredibly enthusiastic about the historical importance of the company and the facility. Her excitement was... More

We walked through rooms of barrels signed by celebrities that had nothing to do with the production or the contents. Some explanation of the process, sniffing nine glasses of sherry that had been used for several days and then tasting some pretty poor quality sherry. Nice facility and nice restrooms but surely there are better bodegas and there is definitely... More

Our third bodega tour in Jerez; the others were better. I liked seeing the grounds, the bodega with it's huge and historic solera systems, and the interesting museum. But the tasting was very basic, just a fino, harvey's bristol cream, and one of their basic brandies. You could buy a bottle of each of these for the price of two... More

After having seen a couple of other bodegas I's say this is one of the best. It has extensive grounds and a large museum as well as the rows and rows of barrels of sherry! We had a very informative tour and an enjoyable tasting in a smart modern tasting area. I think it may be best to reserve -... More

If sherry is your thing you'll enjoy this tour, as the buildings are set in pretty courtyards and some of the exhibits are quite striking. The huge array of large sherry barrels is certainly quite a sight. Because we toured with a Spanish group, there was a lot of waiting around before the English translation began, and our guide, though... More

This was one of two sherry tasting tours we tried in Jerez. This one was smaller, more personal and informative than the Tio Pepe tour. Our guide was excellent, happy to answer questions and clearly very knowledgable. We really enjoyed the tour and of course the tasting. Would recommend trying this one, particularly if you are a fan of their... More

A group of six of us went on the four pm tour. Looking at the facilities and listening to the history were excellent. The sherry tasting was definitely the highlight.
