Andalucia Wine Regions Guide

Unveiling the Secrets of Andalucía's Enchanting Wine Heritage


Last updated: January 4, 2024


For many visitors, Andalucia is Spain: bullfighting, flamenco, beaches, white villages, and delicious tapas are abundant here. It is also Spain’s most topographically diverse region, stretching from the desert-like conditions of Almeria to the lush wetlands of the Donana National Park. Indeed, eight provinces encompass an incredible variety of scenery, ranging from the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the dramatic plains of the mountains which flank Malaga. Yet Andalucian table wines have never been particularly highly regarded, although Sherry remains one of the world’s true originals. Produced in a beautiful area known as Jerez de la Frontera, aged Sherry is one of the most complex – and great value – drinks being made today.

However, pioneers like Telmo Rodriguez were never in any doubt that Andalucia could rise above the ‘Sherry and little else’ cliché. His investment into the vineyard of Malaga has attracted others to the cause; Andalucia now brims with several trendy DOs and a surfeit of artisan labels. Single-site, terroir-driven table wines are the new face of Andalucia, backed up with the traditional vinos generosos: Sherry, of course, in addition to Montilla-Moriles and Malaga. Without question, Sherry is still by far Andalucia’s most famous tipple – perhaps even Spain’s greatest wine – but modern trends have pushed winemakers in other directions. Change is in the air.
