The home of Flamenco and Moorish architecture is the southernmost wine-making area in Spain. While the area does produce some quaffable still wine, it’s the country’s great fortified wine, sherry, that is most often associated with the region.
 
Climate is a major factor in wine production, and there are three climate zones within the region. The west coast along the Atlantic, with cooler climes is home to the subregions Jerez and Sanlucar de Barrameda, which primarily grow the Palomino grape for use in Fino and Manzanilla sherries. The hotter climate in the south is best suited for the sweet sherries of Malaga and Sierras de Malaga, using the grapes Pedro Ximinez and Moscatel. The hot, but drier conditions farther inland in Montilla-Moriles are also more conducive to sweeter styles. 
 
In the northern part of the region, still wines are produced from the white grape Airen, as well as reds from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
