Wine and livestock tradition since 1730. Originally the Domecq family was one of the main winemaking families in the country.
In 1730 the Domecq family arrived in Spain. A name intimately related to the production of high quality food and wines, such as sherry and brandy. A knowledge that has been passed from parents to children. This has always been accompanied by a second passion, the breeding of free range animals, like our 100% Iberian pigs.
In 1970 Juan Pedro Domecq Solís began the breeding of the 100% Iberian pig on his estate in Lo Álvaro, Seville. In an ambitious search to create the most exquisite ham, Juan Pedro relied on different studies carried out in collaboration with several Spanish universities. The result is found in a unique variety: the 100% Iberian Lampiño-Marmellado pig.
In the year 2000, with the support of his son, Juan Pedro Domecq Morenés launched a high quality product to the market. He had his experience in raising the 100% Iberian pig at his disposal.
In 2019 our products can be found in China, Mexico, Australia, Singapore, Thailand or the Caribbean and throughout the entire European Union. We hope to continue expanding our borders, too.
From my family I learned that the vineyard is slowly grown, and good wine is only made in the slow calm of the cellar. In the same way, it is necessary to wait patiently until the pig has reached the appropriate age so that the ham may reach its full potential.
Our goal is for our clients to feel totally confident that they have found an unrivaled product.
The iron of Veragua, from the 18th century
Our logo is that of Veragua iron, a crowned shield, with the V inside, dating from 1790 and owned by the family for more than 80 years.
Our logo is linked to the long family farming tradition, initiated by Mr. Juan Pedro Domecq Nuñez de Villavicencio, great-grandfather of the current owners of the company.
Our origins go back to the 70s with the breeding of 100% Iberian pigs by D. Juan Pedro Domecq Solís, who then sold the same to the ham companies of Jabugo. It would not be until 2000 when Domecq Solís, together with his son Juan Pedro Domecq Morenés, decide to launch the commercial side of the company, forming it as an independent entity within the family group.
