The picturesque little bodega of Faustino González can be found in the barrio of San Miguel in one of the oldest parts of Jerez known as the Cruz Vieja, from which the range of sherries aged here take their name. It was founded in 1972, when Doctor Faustino González Aparicio acquired 220 butts, including some small old soleras dating back to 1789 that had been stored in the Alcázar of Jerez, and moved them into his wife’s bodega. It’s one of the most traditional and beautiful bodegas in Jerez, and the wines, unusually, are still fermented in the barrel, rather than in steel vats.
The bodega produces a full range of sherries (Fino, Palo Cortado, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream and PX), including this year an exclusive saca of 120 numbered bottles of VORS Oloroso from one of the old soleras.
