Founded in 1772, Osborne is one the most prestigious and oldest bodegas in all of Spain. Founder Thomas Osborne Mann was an Englishman whose arrival in Spain was driven by the growing demand in London for wines from Jerez. Upon arrival, he formed a partnership with Sir James Duff, British Consul in Cádiz, streamlining the export market for wines to England and other countries. A few years later, he established the first winery that would carry his name and quickly established the bodega as the pre-eminent producer of Sherry. Osborne has remained in family hands ever since, housed in the original centennial building located in the town of El Puerto de Santa María. Bolstered by their well-established legacy in Jerez and respect for the land and their fellow producers, Bodegas Osborne has been able to preserve some very old soleras. Until recently, most of these soleras were only ever consumed by the Osborne family and were never intended for commercialization. Starting in 2013, the Osborne family commercially released the VORS and Rare collection of sherries for the first time in many decades. These bottlings are extremely limited, and far exceed the 30 year minimum parameters for being labeled VORS; indeed, many of the soleras were begun in the 18th and 19th centuries. What makes this sherry unique? Amontillado 51-1a is an icon in the Sherry district. One of the oldest and finest examples of Amontillado. Solera was founded in 1830. The total Solera is composed of 52 barrels and only 1.5% of the wine is drawn yearly from each barrel. After the dismantling by Pernod Ricard of the Allied Domecq empire in 2005, the VORS soleras were bought by Osborne and moved to El Puerto de Santa Maria, where they now form part of the bodega/museum along with other amazing soleras. These old wines have been beautifully looked after by oenologist Ignacio Lozano, despite their lack of real profitability. They could never be sold for their real value, but help give prestige to the bodega and its other products.
