Few years later, they acquire a winery in Ancha Street, No. 51 of this town, its current headquarters. This winery is popularly known as "El Gallo Winery."

Later, hard work leads to business expansion, through the acquisition of a site where the Aging Winery is currently located of these excellent wines.

The Winery also produces and mature wine vinegars, also with the Jerez - Xeres– Sherry Certificate of Origin.

Our wineries are located in strategic locations which facilitate the movement of air currents from south and west from the Atlantic Ocean, providing a cool and wet environment, dark to avoid the effect of the sun and taking the night breezes with too much humidity, essential for the development of yeast.

Vineyards

The age of the vine growing on these sites is similar to other famous sites of the Jerez - Xeres– Sherry Certificate of Origin. As a result of the historical development of these wines, always linked to Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda or El Puerto de Santa María, the inclusion of the term of Chiclana de la Frontera was produced, in the Jerez wine Certificate of Origin, both for historical character reasons as technical nature.
