A long established, family run business, Antonio Barbadillo is situated in Jerez Superior and its vineyards stretch over 500 hectares. The winery prides themselves on having state of the art facilities alongside ancient barrel halls which can store up to 35 million litres of Sherries. The vineyards of Gibalbín and Santa Lucía are planted on albariza, a porous, chalky soil, particularly well suited to the cultivation of vines grown for the production of quality wines. The climate is mild with more than 3,000 hours of sun softened by the cooling influence of the Atlantic. These factors, together with a long winemaking tradition, allow for excellent ripening of the Palomino grapes and ensure a high degree of beaumé (level of sweetness) and moderate acidity. The harvest takes place during the month of September during which time the Palomino grapes are carefully cut from the vines and quickly transported to new holding presses located in the vineyards. Once the grapes arrive at the modern winemaking plant a light pressing takes place. The selected musts then flow along a complex piping system before arriving in large stainless steel tanks, where a controlled fermentation takes place at low temperatures. After fermentation and the gentle removal of lees, the new wines are expertly classified for subsequent ageing. An old Amontillado sherry that has been aged in the Solera system in old cask of American oak and that has been slightly sweetened.
