BODEGAS TRADICION BRANDY DE JEREZ
Bodegas Tradici—n is a newer winery in Jerez but holds the honor of being the successor to the oldest winery in the area. The bodega was founded in 1998 by Mr. Joaqu’n Rivero, who decided to give continuity to his familyÕs role in the sherry industry. The origins of Bodegas Tradicion are based on ÒBodega CZ, J.M. RiveroÓ, the oldest of the sherry houses known, with business dating back to 1650. J.M. Rivero was, by appointment, supplier of the Royal Houses of Spain and Portugal and the winery obtained many different international awards. Recently, an old sherry warehouse was acquired and after restoration, the first casks arrived to Bodegas Tradici—n. Pursuing the best soleras available is the main objective of the company (as it was in J.M RiveroÕs time) as well as sourcing old and first-rate American oak casks to house these exceptional wines.
