In 1835 Manuel María González bought a small winery in Jerez which he named Tío Pepe after his uncle, who had taught him everything about winemaking traditions in Jerez. That fino would soon start to grow in status in both Spain and abroad to the point that today it stands as one of the most internationally prestigious and recognised Spanish brands.
