Bodegas TradicionAll products from this vendor
“Bodegas Tradición is a new winery located in the Jerez region, but this winery is also the successor to the oldest winery in the Jerez wine region. Joaquín Rivero founded the winery in 1998, deciding to continue the family tradition of sherry production. The roots of Bodegas Tradición sprout from the oldest sherry production Bodega CZ, JM Rivero, which was founded back in 1650. JM Rivero was appointed the official wine supplier to the royal courts of Spain and Portugal, while winning many international awards. Diego Cabeza de Aranda y Zarco, and then Francisco Antonio de la Tixera became his business partner. The initials "CZ" in the name of the trademark correspond to the capital letters of the founder's names, and as a result of the marriage between the daughter of Mr De la Tixera and Mr Joaquín María Rivero y G onzález), the winery was renamed Bodega CZ, J.M. Rivero ". In 1991, Bodega CZ, J.M. Rivero was sold to another winemaker, and Joaquim Rivero immediately set about planning to re-create the family tradition with a new winery and a new strategy: “The word Tradicion carries a double responsibility: continuing the family business and returning to the traditional styles and processes of Jerez winemaking.” For this purpose, an old sherry warehouse was purchased, and after the reconstruction of the warehouse, the first barrels of Bodegas Tradición arrived here. The main goal of the company at that time was the production of the best fortified wines, as well as the purchase of first-class American oak barrels for storing the wines selected by the team of experts from Bodegas Tradicion.
