The first winery
Barbadillo launches the first bottled Manzanilla: Pastora
1827 was a real milestone in this timeline, since Barbadillo shipped their first casks of Manzanilla to Philadelphia. It was such as success that, just a few months later, Barbadillo launched Pastora on the market. It was the first and—at the time—the only bottled manzanilla in the world.
The dream begins
Something new from the north
From the sea a wine was born
And the mountains joined us
Not all of the banks of the river Duero are Ribera del Duero
The perfect match
The result of hard work and passion
Poetry in a bottle: “Barbadillo Versos 1891”
A unique and exceptional amontillado from a single cask that was dedicated in 1891 to Manuel Barbadillo, who would later become a poet and friend to many writers from the Generation of 1927, such as Manuel Machado, who wrote the prologue to some of his books. Versos 1891—already classified as an aged amontillado in the 19th century—began as a christening gift for Manuel Barbadillo from his father. An intense wine with a complex aroma achieved through ageing in the peace and darkness of the Barbadillo wineries in Sanlúcar de Barrameda for more than a century. Only 100 bottles of the historic amontillado were put on the market, at a price of €10,000 each.
Hitting the mark
One of the 100 best ideas in economic news
Cosas del Mar (which translates as either things from the sea or Mar’s things) is a series of comedy videos that recount the adventures of a young girl from Seville who comes into contact with the world of wine for the first time. In each episode, the spectator discovers the company’s different wines through the eyes of the heroine (Mar) and understands how each one is the perfect match for different situations. The spectators vote on their favourite ending for the series.
A commitment to the land
SÁBALO is the start of an organic division based on a profound respect for the land and the ancient traditions of the area. For Bodegas Barbadillo, with almost 200 years of history, commitment to organics is a natural process that you arrive at through deep knowledge of the land and of wines.
