Bodegas Dios Baco was founded in 1765 by the Vergara family and a British firm. In the early 20th century, Sr. Juan Vergara partnered with Sr. Juan Palomino to form the conglomerate, "Los Doce Disciples,” or the Twelve Disciples. The principal cellar amongst the original twelve was Bodegas Dios Baco. In 1992, the Paez Morilla family bought the property and began extensive renovations in the cellar and the vineyards. Currently managed by Jose Paez Morilla, his mission is to produce handcrafted, small-production lots of traditionally made Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream and Pedro Ximenez.

Tasting notes
pretty light gold color, the Fino presents delicate aromasof nuts and hints of dried fruit. Light-weight and completely dry, the finish ends with notes of green apples, almonds and sea salt.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Jun 15 2013)
The singed walnut and Brazil nut notes show a flicker of caramel. Smoke and green tea accents glide through the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. –JM
