It all began in December 2005, when a group of Sherry lovers including Jesus Barquin, a lawyer and director of the Andalusian Institute and a renowned food and drink critic, along with Eduardo Ojeda, director of Grupo Estevez, owners of Bodega Valdespino and the La Guita sherry brand, were visiting a small and historic bodega of Miguel Sanchez Ayala in Sanlucar. It was here that they discovered 65 butts of exceptionally fine old Amontillado, which had languished unsold for around twenty years. They decided to rescue this rare old wine. They chose the name Equipo Navazos (Team Navazos) and named this first bottling ‘La Bota de Amontillado Navazos’. By 2007 these limited edition bottlings had begun to cause quite a stir in the rarefied world of sherries and have been garnering glowing reviews ever since.
