More than just sweet wine
Andalusia has always been famous for the finest sweet wines in the world, namely Sherry, grown in the area around Jerez de la Frontera, as well as Pedro Ximenez from the Malaga and Cordoba regions. However, there are emerging sub-regions that produce some of the best red and white wines in Spain. The suitability for Andalusia as an exemplary wine growing region can be confirmed by the presence of many pioneering Spanish winemakers, such as Telmo Rodríguez, among others.
The climate of Andalusia is hot and dry, with summer winds that help moderate temperatures in the immediate coastal regions. These winds play an important role in moderating the vineyards alone with frequent rainfall (mostly occurring during late autumn and winter). The wines produced in Andalusia are becoming increasingly sought-after, both nationally and internationally, accruing many accolades along the way and thus promoting many sub-regions such as Ronda as first class destinations for enotourism as well as hidden gems for anyone looking for a memorable holiday or a weekend getaway with a difference.
