Ximenez-Spinola is the only cellar in Spain and in the world specialises in grapes from the variety 'Pedro Ximenez'.

Since 1729, this viticultures family had cleared three ingredients to make their sweet wines. They are 'time, patience and self-criticism'. Being the most important one the self criticism spirit which makes an oenologist capable to waste litres and litres of wine when he is not satisfied.

Thanks to this selective process, this company began to distil the wines that did not get the highest standard of quality and Ximenez-Spinola started its double identity as a producer of wines and spirits. Since then, that philosphy has been passed from generation to generation to lead on Jose Antonio Zarzana, follower of a modest company in quantity but big in quality.
