The history of Osborne dates back to the end of the 18th century, when a young merchant called Thomas Osborne Mann arrived in Cádiz to commercialize the wines of the area. He soon set up business in Puerto de Santa María, the town where he founded his own winery which, more than 200 years later, would become the major business group that now enjoys international fame and recognition.
