Bodegas Dios Baco was founded in 1765 by the Vergara family and a British firm. In the early 20th century, Sr. Juan Vergara partnered with Sr. Juan Palomino to form the conglomerate, "Los Doce Disciples,” or the Twelve Disciples. The principal cellar amongst the original twelve was Bodegas Dios Baco. In 1992, the Paez Morilla family bought the property and began extensive renovations in the cellar and the vineyards. Currently managed by Jose Paez Morilla, his mission is to produce handcrafted, small-production lots of traditionally made Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream and Pedro Ximenez.

Tasting notes
With aromas of yeast, pear, marzipan and mushrooms, this medium-bodied sherry displays integrated and balanced acidity. Notes of apple and cashew are highlighted in the long and refreshing finish.

 Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2008)
Elegant, sporting apple and straw notes. A hint of oiliness in the texture, and it lingers appealingly, with an almond aftertaste. Drink now. 5,000 cases made. –BS

Technical notes
The vinification and aging process between a Palomino Fino and a Manzanilla is exactly the same except that Manzanilla must age for a minimum of five years in Sanlucar de Barremeda. The town's coastal location and climatic conditions impart slight notes of saline and iodine.
