Telefónica and the Osborne Foundation unveil a research and innovation project carried out by young people

El Puerto de Santa María, 21 March 2017. The Osborne Foundation and Telefónica, as part of its Talentum initiative, present a project to restore the historical archives belonging to the Osborne family.

As part of the agreement, Telefónica has set up a Talentum LAB comprising 10 young university students reading Engineering, History, Computing and other disciplines, chosen from the most outstanding students of their years, to research and develop new digital technologies enabling the management and consultation of historical documents.

For its part, the Osborne Foundation has provided the project with a range of material and human resources, and in particular its private archive – highlights of which include letters written by Washington Irving and Fernán Caballero, commercial correspondence with European royal households and institutions such as the Vatican and other documents that form part of the history of Osborne, the second-oldest family business in Spain, founded in 1772.

Osborne unveils new offerings in the wine tourism industry in El Puerto de Santa María

El Puerto de Santa María, 24th January 2017. Osborne has announced that new areas of its hundred-year old wineries in El Puerto de Santa María have been opened to the public. The opening ceremony took place on the company’s premises at midday, and was attended by the mayor of El Puerto de Santa María and the president of the Regulatory Board of the Designation of Origin "Jerez-Xérès-Sherry", along with other authorities and representatives from the wine-making and tourist sectors.

In the words of the company’s president, Tomás Osborne, “the opening of these areas to the public constitutes a landmark in Osborne’s history, and will have a major impact on the levels of tourist activity in the region. With this project and the refurbished facilities, the company will continue educating visitors upon the history of an activity which is as deeply rooted in Cádiz as the production of wine and brandy, whilst remaining faithful to the age-old tradition loyally guarded by Osborne since 1772.”

The Osborne Foundation and the Research Foundation of the University of Seville (FIUS) present their new project, ‘New Uses for Hundred-Year-Old Wineries in the 21st Century’

El Puerto de Santa María, 17th February 2017. At their headquarters in El Puerto de Santa María, the Osborne Foundation presented a number of projects that have been designed by students to create sustainable new uses for the buildings which once housed old wineries in this area of Cádiz.

The Santa María Councillor for Town Planning, Angel Quintana, President of the Osborne Foundation, Tomás Osborne, and the FIUS Project Coordinator and Associate Professor, Luis González-Boado were all in attendance for the presentation of the project, entitled ‘New Uses for Hundred-Year-Old Wineries in the 21st Century’.

The students have been working in detail on a ‘real-life’ case, coming up with solutions for the group of wineries owned by Osborne in the city centre which are referred to as ‘Export Wineries’. The challenge that was set for them by the Osborne Foundation was to design a training centre, with the wineries housing classrooms, meeting rooms, auditoriums and other such spaces.

The exhibition is housed in the Osborne Foundation area of the Mora Winery, at Calle los Moros 7 in El Puerto de Santa María. It will be open to visitors until the 21st April, with visiting hours between 10:00 and 14:30. Entry is free.

Osborne achieves 241 million in sales in 2015

El Puerto de Santa María, 9th May 2016. Osborne has just held its General Assembly of Shareholders in which it approved its 2015 accounts.

In 2015, the company reached 241 million euros worth of sales and an Ebitda of 35.6 million euros. These figures represent a decrease of 1.6% and 11% respectively in relation to 2014, this being solely due to the finalisation of the distribution of Seagram’s Gin in the Spanish market.

In 2015, in line with its Strategic Plan, Osborne replaced the distribution of brands which had a significant impact on its sales and Ebitda in previous years, namely Seagram’s Gin and Monster Energy Drink, with the introduction of new distribution agreements of great added value and growth potential, namely Brockmans Gin and Fever Tree. At the same time, Osborne has pushed forward with its international growth, making its China subsidiary the main international market for Cinco Jotas.
