The winery Herederos de Argüeso was founded by Mr. Leon de Argüeso y Argüeso in 1822. Mr. Argüeso was established in Sanlúcar a few years earlier from Arija (Burgos). Initially he opened a small grocery store called "Almacén del Reloj", which gradually prospered. To create the winery business, León de Argüeso acquired some old barrels and the "San Jose" cellar in the alley of Santo Domingo, which was the first to have the business and whose age is estimated at more than 250 years. He never lost contact with his hometown, creating and maintaining a school in Arija, among other charitable actions for social work. The Ministry of Government awarded him with the Grand Cross of the Charity for this social work. Mr. Leon did not marry, so at his death he left the business and his fortune to his two nephews, Juan and Francisca. Hence the anagram located at the winery's seal "Los Dos Herederos de Don León de Argüeso (The two Heirs of Mr. León de Argüeso)" with the initials "J & F". The business was expanded in 1.905, constituting new wineries around the original core of the Bodega San Jose, opening the whole main facade facing the Mar Street. Gradually, a series of new buildings were added to complete the winery, where the headquarters of the company are located nowadays. Read less
