Bodegas Barón was founded by Manuel Barón Fernández in 1895 who acquired some old soleras from Anselmo Paz, an almacenista in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Manuel Barón’s wife had a much older family history in sherry though, so you could say Barón’s history goes back almost 400 years already. Today, ten generations later, the company is owned by Jose Rodriguez Jiménez and his sons Juan Luis and Jose. It is located in the barrio alto of Sanlúcar, where they store nearly 10.000 barrels of wine. They also have newer premises in the outskirts of town. They own three vineyards, all on Albariza soil: Finca Atalaya (previously owned by Osborne), Finca Martín Miguel and Finca Poedo. While their focus is still on Manzanilla, Bodegas Barón are clearly working hard to extend their range and gain more interest. We respect the environment using 100% ecological products, maintaining a commitment to the future and sustainable development, with a maximum guarantee of quality in all our products.
Fairly pale amber, tea-brown hue. The bouquet uncovers a praline bonbon, liquor bonbons, toasted caramel, nuts, bitter almonds, natural woods and again that saline mixture taking on the pituitary. The palate has a powerful entrance, it fills the mouth, with a silky touch, paraffin, iodine and bitter almonds appear now and a spicy, warm sensation when it is kept lingering, trying to squeeze that flavor to the maximum, but fresh in its long journey when it eventually comes to a close.
