Founded back in 1835 by a partnership between Spanish Manuel Maria González Angel and his British agent Robert Blake Byass, González Byass is one of the “classic bodegas” of the Sherry Triangle (Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda, and El Puerto de Santa Maria).
The winery itself is still family-owned and boasts vineyards in the best parcels of Jerez- Macharnudo, Carrascal, and Burujena. The Sherries produced at González Byass include Finos, Manzanillas, Olorosos, Amontillados, and Pedro Ximénez styles. The flagship sherry though is one single brand, Tio Pepe (Uncle Joe). Tio Pepe has singlehandedly changed the way people perceive sherry.
