Andalusia has produced wine for three thousand years. Introduced by the Phoenicians, the vine withstood the presence of the Arabs and prevailed at the end of the Middle Ages. The collaboration between British merchants and Andalusian winegrowers has given rise to wines with a strong personality, often mutated, capable of withstanding long sea crossings. Andalusia creates a Mediterranean amphitheater, surrounded by reliefs and thanks to the climate and the moderate average temperature (around 16 degrees) make this land an ideal place for growing grapes and brewing famous wines. The greatest Andalusian wines (in particular Jerez, Montilla-Moriles) are mutated white wines, dry or sweet, often of the oxidizing type, obtained after a complex and unique aging process in the world (criader, solera). The differentiating factors between the names are due to climate change (marine influence), the soil (mainly limestone), the grape varieties (Palomino, Pedro Ximenez, Moscatel etc.) and local applications (breeding, aging). In recent years, Andalusia has also produced good dry, consistent and warm red wines from imported varieties. In recent years, with the advent and international recognition, this popularity has increased and Andalusian bodegas have been highlighted by wine tourism, in fact the region produces half a million hectoliters per year.
