SINCE THE 18TH CENTURY
THE ORIGIN OF OSBORNE: SHERRY WINES
Since the young Englishman Thomas Osborne Mann founded his first winery in 1772 in Cádiz, Osborne has remained in the hands of the same family over seven generations. It is now one of the best-known brandy and sherry producers both in Spain and across international markets.
THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
BODEGAS OSBORNE, A PRIVILEGED LOCATION
The Sherry region is located to the north-east of the province of Cádiz, the southernmost part of the Iberian peninsular. It is surrounded by the Atlantic coast and framed by the Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. The Sherry region is a triangular shape that encompasses the towns of:
- Jerez de la Frontera
- El Puerto de Santa María
- Sanlúcar de Barrameda
The region's climate is ideal for growing grapes, with Atlantic influence, mild winters and dry, hot summers. The area is dominated by two types of winds: the Poniente (a fresh, humid westernly wind) and the Levante (a dry, hot easterly wind). The alternation between these prevailing winds favours the growth of the grapes and the particular process of ageing under flor that occurs in the wineries.
