Emperador mexican subsidiary expands winery business

THE winery of global spirits conglomerate Emperador Inc.’s subsidiary in Mexico, Casa Pedro Domecq, called Bodegas Domecq – which specializes in making wine and tending vineyards – is embarking on an expansion program that will support the continued and long-term growth of the winery. The contribution from this winery has helped Emperador’s 50 percent-owned Casa Domecq in Mexico to maintain growth since 2017 when Emperador made the investment. While improvements have been made at the winery’s technical facilities in the last couple of years, there are ongoing plans that call for the planting of vineyards in the Ojos Negros Valley, as well as equipping the winery with the latest technology. Domecq was founded in 1730 in Jerez de la Frontera and arrived in Mexico in 1948, making wine in small wineries in Zacatecas or Aguascalientes mainly for the creation of brandies. The physical winery was born in 1972, celebrating 50 years of Bodegas Domecq. Emperador Inc. is a publicly listed company on both the Philippine Stock Exchange and the Singapore Stock Exchange. (PR)
