Bodegas González–Byass

Jerez de la Frontera

Home to the famous Tío Pepe brand, 1835-founded González–Byass is one of Jerez' biggest sherry houses, just west of the Alcázar. There are several daily tours in Spanish, English and German; check schedules and book online (not essential). Basic visits include the Gustav Eiffel–designed La Concha bodega, and a sampling of two wines in the glossy designer tasting room; others add tapas and extra sherries. A luxe, on-site González–Byass hotel was in the works at research time.
