Álvaro Domecq is a relatively young bodega, but the history of its wines goes back a long way. Álvaro Domecq was part of the influential Domecq family. Originally from France, their winemaking tradition dates back to 1730, when their relatives of the Haurie family were running a bodega in Jerez together with the Irishman Patrick Murphy. Jean-Charles Haurie handed it over to Pedro Domecq Lembeye, one of his nephews, in 1822. After the second World War, the company was run by members of five branches of the family, presided by Don Alvaro. Around 1994 the family agreed to sell their business – one of the very oldest in Jerez – to Allied Lyons (now called Allied Domecq).
