The history of the Domecq family dates back six generations to Juan Haurie, a distant great uncle of Miguel Domecq who founded a winery in Jerez in the year 1730. His legacy was carried on by his nephews, and most notably by Juan Carlos Haurie who, over the years, managed to make it the largest winery in Jerez.
Three generations later, another great nephew, Pedro Domecq, became the firm’s sole proprietor and bestowed his name on it. From then on and until 1931, Pedro Domecq wines had the exclusive privilege of bearing the seal as “Royal Warrant Holder to the Spanish Royal Family.”
The fourth generation and last sole proprietor was Pedro Domecq Lustau who, in addition to making wine, also developed a thriving brandy-making business.
Juan Pedro, one of the Domecq Villavicencio brothers, stood out among the family’s fifth generation members for expanding the business worldwide.
With the sixth generation came a truly international presence. Thanks to the role of Juan Pedro Domecq y Díez, one of the firm’s most active promoters, wineries were established in many different countries.
Now in its seventh generation, Juan Pedro’s son, Miguel Domecq, continues the family saga. He has devoted his entire career to the legacy of Pedro Domecq and has been a member of the Board for 25 years. The business remained entirely family-owned until its divestment in the late 1990’s, when it was the world’s eighth largest wine and spirits firm.
It was at that time when Miguel Domecq founded the Miguel Domecq winery to carry on the family’s winemaking tradition.
