Wines from Montilla and Moriles
Wines from the Montilla-Moriles area are not far behind those from Jerez. A very similar range is produced here, that "finos", "olorosos", "amontillados" and sweet wine of excellent quality and character provided by the Pedro Ximénez grape, largely grown in this area. There is a good variety of sweet, dense and aromatic wines that are popular with those who like them sweet.
A tour of this area can prove very attractive, for there are two quite different landscapes; the hills of the Subbética range considered a national park and the fertile plains of the Cordovan countryside. In the former, there are some attractive towns, like Baena and Cabra. The other towns that produce wine that comes under the Montilla-Moriles Designation of Origin are Doña Mencía, Montalbán, Montilla, Moriles, Nueva Carteya, Puente Genil, Aguilar de la Frontera, La Rambla, Fernán Núñez, Lucena, Montemayor and Santaella.
The wines from this area are excellent companions for the Spanish range of sausages, specially the "finos" and "amontillados". The sweet wines are very good with desserts.
