Mahogany colour. Nuances of plums, raisins and chocolate. Unctuous and smooth on the palate with a lingering finish. A vigorous and well-balanced wine. Ideal in the kitchen as an ingredient in both desserts and savoury dishes such as pork and orange casserole; its vigour ensures that it stands up well to any culinary challenge.
Barbadillo is a family owned business, one hundred percent Spanish, that effortlessly brings together tradition and modernity. It looks towards the future without forsaking its origins and skilfully converts the true essence of the south into its unequivocal mark of identity.
Barbadillo currently owns 500 hectares of vineyards spread over two estates, Gibalbín and Santa Lucía, both of which are located in the area known as Jerez Superior, or Upper Jerez. The former has an extensive winemaking plant fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology and Barbadillo’s numerous wine cellars are strategically distributed over the outstanding area of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, surrounding the medieval castle of Santiago. The cellars occupy a total area of more than 75,000 m2 and have an overall capacity of 35,000,000 litres, which is the largest in Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
Situated in the south of Spain, a delightful and vibrant land that was aptly named the “Place of the Sun” by the illustrious writer Don Manuel Barbadillo Rodríguez, the soul and symbol of the company for over half a century, Barbadillo merges with the clear skies of Cádiz and cares for roots that have filled its barrels over centuries.
The company is located in the region of Jerez where the mighty Guadalquivir River meets the sea in the beautiful Coto de Doñana National Park; an extraordinary World Heritage Site. In this unique setting, and as a result of the gentle compliance of the climate and the generosity of the earth, a unique wine is born that has become a universal name; Manzanilla.
