Malaga is a land of great wines, with much tradition, whose origin dates back to the time of the invasion of the Roman Empire. It has two Designations of Origin (D.O.): Malaga and Sierras de Malaga, where you will find sweet, red, white, sparkling wines… although what is exported most, is undoubtedly the sweet wines, very refreshing, made from classic grapes such as Muscat and Pedro Ximenez, the latter widely used in modern cuisine, for the different flavor it gives to the food.
As we have explained previously, there are two D.O.’s that are D.O. Malaga, where the most famous wines are found, which are the sweet wines, very used in appetizers and in fairs and celebrations: Lágrima, Pajarete, Pedro Ximénez, Moscatel… There is also a great tradition in Malaga of meeting up with friends or family and going to emblematic places to taste these wines, with some tapas, and then having dinner.
On the other hand there are the wines of D.O. Sierra de Málaga, where we find red, white and rosé wines. Although not all of them are so famous with sweets, it must be said that their evolution is very fast, and we can find some of them in tables of any restaurant at national level, besides they are included in the tasting menus of the restaurants with Estrella Michellin in Malaga. We can find many wineries with wines with national and even international awards. We will make a post only talking about the best wineries, as it is worth knowing each of them.
