Producer: Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, with a history of Sherry production going back six centuries. Back in 1264, Alfonso Valdespino was one of 24 knights who fought against the Arabs for the city of Jerez with King Alfonso X. As a reward for his efforts he was given land that formed the basis of the bodega. Today Valdespino belongs to the Estevez family, who purchased the bodega in 1999. The Fino ‘Inocente’ is one of their single-vineyard Sherries made from grapes grown in their Marcharnudo Alto plot. It is also the only Fino Sherry that is fermented in oak barrels and boasts a solera system with ten ‘criaderas’, while most Fino Sherries have only three.
