Diez Hermanos

Founded 1875
Owner Paternina

This House was started as a sherry producer by Don Salvado Diez and his four brothers and continues with Madeira before its Port production. The family originated from Soria in Spain. At the turn of 1800th century they bought the port shipper Manuel Misa and change its name to Diez Hermanos Ltd. In 1929 Pablo Diez married and moved to Oporto setting up the Diez group and was director of the house until his death in 1966.Offley Forrester bought the house in 1968. In 1994, Paternina acquired Bodegas Internacionales, based in Jerez, which included a number of traditional sherry brands, such as Marqués de Mérito, Díez Hermanos, Bertola, and José Pemartín y Cía. These were merged, creating Paternina's Sherry Division. The company began producing fortified wines under the Jerez-Xerès-Sherry y Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda appellation.

Diez Vintages:1940, 1942, 1960, 1963, 1970, 1975, 1977, 1987
