Bodegas La Dolores began in the beginning of 2022 when Pepe Marco took over the rights to The La Dolores Liquor Factory, which closed in 1970. The factory was founded in 1819, and held a long tradition which was highly reputable in Calatayud.

The story of La Dolores is famous not only in Spain, but across the world, particularly in Spanish-speaking countries. The Catalan writer José Felíu y Codina began writing a romance in 1876 that would be the origin of a drama he later titled “La Dolores.” It took him 16 years to finish and be performed in the theatre. Since then, the story has been adapted for the opera, musicals and movies and has become a beloved story throughout Spain and other parts of Europe.

Since then, the story has been adapted for the opera, musicals and movies and has become a beloved story throughout Spain and other parts of Europe. The story is based on Dolores Peinador, who was a woman from Calatayud, Spain who fell in love with a man her father disapproved of, so he disinherited her.

La Dolores has become a heroine throughout Spain and represents the city of Calatayud, wine, and vermouth. Pepe Marco founded La Dolores with the idea to build the brand around the story of La Dolores. The La Dolores Liquor factory was previously known for their wide range of drinks which included Absinthe, Liqueurs, and Torino-style vermouths. Pepe was able to recover the original vermouth recipe and use it to create their own vermouth, which now accounts for 60% of their volume.
