The D.O. Jerez is located in the Northwest of the province of Cadiz, the southernmost of the Iberian peninsula. Nestled in the Atlantic and framed by the Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers coast, is a privileged region, in which the purest essence of the character of la Baja Andalucía focuses: the light, the sea and a landscape of hills, white and soft. The wines produced in the region of Jerez, following certain traditional processes and complying with specific conditions, are legally protected by designations of origin "Jerez-Xérès-Sherry" and "Manzanilla – Sanlucar de Barrameda". In the case of "Manzanilla – Sanlucar de Barrameda" designation, the corresponding area of breeding is exclusively limited to this city. Although the raw material (grape or wine base) for "Manzanilla" can come from any place within the area of production, the aging process should be carried out in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The climate of the area of Jerez is warm, as a result of its low latitude.
The regulation of the regulatory Council drew the following varieties of grape as suitable for the production of sherry: Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and muscatel. In all three cases it's white grape varieties.
