In 1264 a group of 24 knights led the troops of King Alfonso X, to re-conquer the town of Jerez from Moorish domination. Once the town was re-conquered the King rewarded this group of noble knights with properties and land. One of them named Alfonso Valdespino also received a vineyard in the outskirts of the town, being the first official record of a Valdespino being involved in viticulture. A.R. Valdespino was set up as a firm, producing and selling Sherries, in 1875. In 1883 Valdespino became the official Sherry supplier to the Spanish Royal House. In 1910, the company trademarked “Sacristia”, a small corner within the Bodega where the oldest wines are kept. In 1999 the Estevez family, a highly reputed Sherry & Brandy producer, acquired Valdespino and led to a new expansion period.
