Wines from El Aljarafe and Los Palacios
This is the largest of all the wine producing areas and may be considered fifth after the four with Designation of Origin. It lies to the west of Seville and reaches over to the provincial boundary with Huelva. There are approximately 1,000 has. in some twenty-two municipalities, among which those with large "bodegas" are Bollullos de la Mitación, Espartinas, Pilas and Villanueva del Ariscal. This wine producing area can be considered as the continuation of the neighbouring Country of Huelva - the varieties of grape being the same and the results similar.
Without leaving the province of Seville, but to the south, we come upon the area of Los Palacios. Most of the wines is of the "mistela" type (spiked must), sweet and light. They are produced in Dos Hermanas, Alcalá de Guadaira, Utrera and Los Palacios.
