Wines from Costa Albondon and Laujar

This wine comes from a lovely hilly area in the midst of the Contraviesa range, between Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean. The towns to visit are Albondón, Albuñol, Almegíjar, Cádiar, Jorairátar, Cástaras, Turón, etc., all with a Moorish past.

The wine produced here is very characteristic: it is fortified with wine alcohol and left to age for a long time in wooden casks until it becomes rancio. It is a great favourite with some people, but difficult to find in shops. It is best tasted in local restaurants.

Almería has no wines worth of mention, for the climate is not appropiate for vineyards. There are some, however, around Alcolea, Fondón and Láujar. They are pale clarets and others are aged after being fortified with alcohol, as in Granada.
