The 12 Days of PXmas – Day Two

On the second day of PXmas we’d like to introduce you to 2 very special viticultural areas in Montilla-Moriles, the Sierra de Montilla and the Moriles Alto.

The Moriles Alto is located north of the town of Moriles with the Sierra de Montilla in the hills to the east of Montilla.

At 1,300 – 1,600 feet (400 – 600 metres) above sea level, these are the 2 viticultural area within the region that produce the best quality Pedro Ximénez grapes on albarizo soils.

Merry PXmas.
