Bodegas Tradición’s origins begin with “Bodega CZ, JM Rivero”, the oldest of the sherry-producing companies, already active in 1650. In 1998 Bodegas was purchased by three entrepreneurs, all with a family history related to sherry: Joaquin Rivero, Ignacio Lopez de Carrizosa and Javier Domecq. About 20,000 bottles are produced per year, of which 80% is destined for export. The filtration of their wines is reduced to a minimum in respect of the traditional styles of Jerez. The Bodega also houses the Rivero family art collection which includes about 300 fabulous works of Spanish art from the 15th to the 19th century and a 19th century photographic exhibition that tells the story of the Jerez wine.
