Williams & Humbert

One of the less well-known bodegas, this was founded in 1877 by Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert. It is now owned by Spanish company Medina.

While not as attractive as the other bodegas, in terms of their plant-covered different buildings and patios, it can claim to offer the biggest single-building bodega in the world - a staggering 180,000m2, it stretches as far as the eye can see, and beyond - which won the National Architecture Prize.

The tour includes the harness room, to reflect the original company's equestrian heritage; barrels have been signed by the Beatles, no less. Their more famous products include Gran Duque de Alba brandy, as well as Canasta, the most popular sweet oloroso in Spain, and Dry Sack sherry. The museum has many pieces of sherry-making equipment, including presses and tools, dating from the 17th century.

A more unusual aspect of this company is that its grounds are host to 17 different species of birds from all over the world, including black swan, greylag goose and cattle egret.

This bodega tour includes an equestrian show on Wednesday and Friday at 12 noon.
