Montilla Moriles

The area of designation of origin, named after two cities, is located in the south of the province of Córdoba, in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. The vineyard extends over approximately 10,000 hectares and is located between 300 and 700 meters above sea level. Until 1933, most of the wines were delivered to Jerez, further west, where they were used to produce Sherry. Today, the white grape variety Pedro Ximénez dominates here.
The dry wines from this grape will be softer and richer with more body than the wines Palomino grape in the Sherry region.
For heavy and sweet varieties, the grapes are left to dry on the vines. In addition, fruity white wines (Jovenes Afrutado) from the Baladí (Cayetana Blanca), Torrontés, Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel (Muscat d'Alexandrie) varieties are produced.
