Additional Information: The world renowned Bodega Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jérez, founded in 1264 when King Alfonso X gave Don Alfonso Valdespino land in Jérez.  Don Alfonso was one of 24 Christian knights who fought to regain the Jérez from the Moors. Commercial activities are thought to date as far back as 1430 but the company was only formed in 1875. In 1999, Valdespino was bought by  Grupo Bodeguero Estévez.
