Wines fortifieds designation of origin D.O. Jerez - Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda
The wine-growing region of Jerez is on the south of the country, influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and framed by the Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. In climatic conditions, it is part of the named “Baja Andalucia”, 300 days of sun with high temperatures in summer and rainfalls of 600 liters per year. The regulatory council of the Denomination of Origin Jerez was created in 1933 and the Manzanilla from Sanlúcar de Barrameda was included in this cluster. From 1964 on, the Denominations of Origin Jerez – Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda were differenced but yet regulated by the same council.
