Bodegas Yuste

Sanlúcar native Francisco (Paco) Yuste has been a true lover of Manzanilla his entire life.

In 1991, after building a successful beverage distributorship in the provinces of Cádiz and Córdoba, he purchased the historic Bodega Santa Ana in Sanlúcar’s Barrio Bajo. The purchase included a centenarian “solera” and Paco began operation as an “almacenista.”

In 2001 he added Bodega Los Ángeles in the Barrio Alto, restoring it to Manzanilla production and using it to refresh his “criaderas” at Santa Ana. Bodega Miraflores, founded in 1956, was acquired in 2010 to serve as production base. The acquisition of the classic Aurora brand in 2015 was followed in 2016 by the purchase of Herederos de Argüeso with its famous Manzanilla, San León.

Warmed date, toffee and buckwheat flavors glide along on a viscous, caressing texture, ending with ginger and Christmas pudding notes. Has good freshness in addition to the bass line.
