15.4.16 Mauricio González-Gordon Elected Caballero
González Byass president Mauricio González-Gordon has been elected to the Gran Orden de los Caballeros del Vino. This distinction is in recognition of his work in promoting Spanish quality wine in the United Kingdom. The order was established in 1984 by the Spanish institute of foreign trade ICEX and every year two people, either Spanish or British, are elected for their contribution to trade by secret ballot. The investiture takes place at the dinner following the annual ICEX Wines From Spain Trade Fair in London.
Meanwhile, González Byass’ bodega La Concha hosted the presentation of Jerez’ Feria del Caballo by the mayoress, Mamén Sánchez. The feria starts on the 30 April and this year it is dedicated to women.
