The winery has extensive vineyards located in the most famous “pagos” (wine production areas) of the Montilla y Morilles mountain range: Las Puentes, El Lagarito and Rompebonetes. There, the main protagonist is the grape Pedro Ximénez, originally from the Rhine’s area. A grape that has become the single base of our sweet, fino, oloroso and amontillado wines. The wine is left to rest in the quite and peaceful atmospheres of the “La Sacristia, El Liceo and Las Mercedes cellars. The wine is placed in American butts, where is aged in wood using the criadera and solera system. That is the traditional method used by the Andalusian denominations of origin to mix and age the fortified wines and brandies. The criaderas reflect the stages of the ageing. The oak butts are piled up on top of each other, starting with the first one on the ground, which is known as the solera. The butts of the first criadera are immediately on top of the solera, the second criadera on top of the first and so on. The wine is Read more »

  • Alvear Amontillado Montilla-Moriles NV

    Snoothrank:

    Liquid peanut brittle with a touch of candied orange rind and a bag of nuts that would make a Central Park squirrel feel like John Jacob Astor. No blue hair required to enjoy this not-to-sweet Sherry. Read More

  • Alvear Px de Añada Montilla-Moriles NV

    Snoothrank:

    Very very thick treacle like wine. Sweet and a bit cloying, this is a port like wine, but it was too much for me. Lacking in acidity the sweetness made the wine feel flabby, and the gloupiness was overpowering. Its interesting, and fairly unique, but it overpowered my dessert, although it might work with a strong cheese. Read More

  • Alvear Px de Añada Montilla-Moriles 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Light honey color. The nose shows brown sugar, raw oak and candy like nuts. Viscous and thick with a high acidity that balances it nicely. Dry fruits, prunes, raisens, and a bit of oak on the finish. 3.5/5 [NR] Read More

  • Alvear Amontillado Montilla-Moriles NV

    Snoothrank:

    Light gold in color with hints of brown that move throughout. Caramely nose with brown sugar, maple syrup and roasted nut flavors. Salty with a strong acidity and roasted nut flavors. Hazelnuts, coated in honey and roasted with a touch of salt linger on my palate long after I finish this wine. 4/5 [NR] Read More

  • Alvear Oloroso Montilla-Moriles Asuncion NV

    Snoothrank:

    Rich golden color with brown core. Carmely nose with fresh nuts, and pure vanilla bean aromas. Great acidity in this wine with a light sweetness that is balanced well. Sweet roasted nuts with touches of salt and cherry undercurrents give this wine character. Lingering long after the last sip flavors of caramel and cherries waft through my mouth.... Read More
