Montilla wines resemble sherry wines, but they have their own character and separate denomination de Origin. They are products of Cordoba and grown in the great carpet of vineyards stitched with olive and almond trees, which stretches around the ancient city of Cordoba 250 miles north of Jerez and about 125 miles from Servile. This ancient Province has a long history of conquest by Phoenicians, Romans, Moors and the Spanish Kings, it is also described as the frying pan of Spain. The principle grape here is Pedro Ximenez, (PX as it is known in Jerez, where it makes only sweet wines) but in Montilla where it ripens early and are harvested early, with high sugar content which is fermented into alcohol, with the result of bone dry fino@s of around 16% and Oloroso or Amontillado at 19% to 21% without fortification.
