In 1887, the Sánchez Romate family began to make brandy for private consumption. Its quality soon drives a growing fame and the winery decides to market it under the name of Cardenal Mendoza. The first Cardinal Mendoza to whom our brandy refers was D. Pedro González de Mendoza (1423-1495), a central historical figure in 15th century Spain. As an advisor to the Catholic Monarchs, he had the complete confidence of Queen Elizabeth, decisively intervening in support of the first voyage of Christopher Columbus and playing a decisive role in the unification of Spain.
