The research and knowledge from the Gonzalez Byass team of oenologists has resulted in an important list of achievements. Some of the more relevant international contests have prized the quality of a number of wines that are backed by more than 100 years' experience. On the other hand, contests at a national level have placed Gonzalez Byass as a benchmark company in the Spanish wine scene. – Description from dvoristanac

For over 170 years, González Byass has committed itself to research and quality for its range of products. Three of them particularly stand out: Tío Pepe -world sales leader in fino sherries; Soberano -the brandy leader in Spain, its country of origin; and Lepanto-with its singular bottle, a design from the La Granja Royal Crystal Factory. It is the 80s when González Byass chooses to start developing some still wines, what brought about the presence of the group in Spain's main Designations of Origin through the Beronia, Vilarnau, Finca Constancia and Finca Moncloa wineries. In addition, González Byass acquires "Chinchón de la Alcoholera", the only anisette that is 100% distilled. In 2003, González Byass creates the company Summa, taking a step ahead in the world of beverage distribution. In 2004, Grupo VIPS develops a new restaurant concept through the alliance with a great brand: Tío Pepe. At Tío Pepe restaurants, traditional Spanish food is prepared and served in a modem environment. Nowadays, our firm has opened 8 Tío Pepe restaurants in Madrid, where clients, obviously, can also enjoy the spirit of this great wine. In line with its expansion strategy in the wine-growing sector, González Byass acquires in 2008 all the shares of Vinas del Vero, a landmark winery in Aragon's Somontano Designation of Origin. With this purchase, González Byass establishes itself as a leading player in Spain's wine-growing industry, with more than 1,844 hectares of own vineyards and a total output of 49 million bottles -including both wines and brandies.
