The deepest roots of Bodegas Dios Baco reach back to 1765 when the construction was begun on a winery complex consisting of 12 individual wineries. That was the beginning of a tradition that continues today. The wineries were called “The Twelve Apostles” and located in Jerez de la Frontera, in southern Spain’s Andalusia region.
In 1992, its current owner Jose Paez Morilla purchased the winery and created Bodegas Dios Baco – God Baccus Winery – named for one of the original 1765 Twelve Apostles wineries, bringing the story full circle. He renovated the building and today, he and his daughter, Alejandra, handcraft their limited batches of fine sherry.
