Who We Are
González Byass USA is a Chicago based importer for a strategically selected portfolio of fine wine and spirit brands from around the world including Spain, Chile, France, Italy, Austria and the US.
González Byass USA is the US subsidiary of González Byass, headquartered in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. From its foundation in 1835, the González family has been dedicated to making fine Sherries and brandies in Jerez, creating such well-known brands as Tio Pepe Fino Sherry and Lepanto Brandy de Jerez.
Today the fifth generation of the family are the custodians of these exceptional brands, having built the company into a family of wineries in some of Spain’s most famous regions: Bodegas Beronia (Rioja and Rueda), Cavas Vilarnau (Barcelona), Finca Constancia (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla), Viñas del Vero (Somontano) and Pazos de Lusco (Rías Baixas). In each of these regions the family strives to make the best possible quality wines respecting the local terroir and the environment. In 2016, González Byass expanded to Chile with the purchase of the Veramonte, Ritual, Primus and Neyen wine brands, along with two wineries and vineyards in Casablanca, Colchagua and the famous, hidden Apalta Valley.
The company has also expanded its interests further in the premium spirits business, creating pioneering brands such as The London No.1 Gin and Nomad Outland Whisky to complement their Spanish brandies, which include Soberano and Lepanto. The company’s latest acquisition is the family of brandies of Pedro Domecq, the market leaders in Mexico, and well-distributed across the US.
González Byass USA, in addition to its Spanish brands, represents a number of international wineries in the US market, including from Austria: Domäne Wachau, Skoff and Zantho; from Italy: Caldora, Cantine Cellaro, Masottina, Vesevo, Vigneti Del Salento and Villa de Borgo; from France: Champagne Palmer, Domaine de l’Arjolle and Léon Beyer; and from the US: Row Eleven.
