"In the historic town of Montilla, South of Cordoba, a tradition of craftsmanship and wine making has been maintained since Roman times. In 1905 the cellars of Perez Barquero were first established. From its foundation, Perez Barquero has continually dedicated itself to the production of the wine: from the selection of the best parcels of ground (chalky soils of the Sierra of Montilla and Moriles Alto); the harvesting, transport and pressing of the grape; the fermentation of the must. This is followed by a tasting and selection of the new wine which according to its characteristics is aged in barrels to become either Fino, Oloroso, Amontillado or sweet Pedro Ximenez wine. In 1985 the winery was purchased by Rafael Cordoba who owns other three wineries in Montilla: Bodegas Gracia, Vinicola del Sur and Tomas Garcia. They own close to 100 hectares of vineyards in some of the best locations in the appellation, in Sierra de Montilla and in Moriles Alto. The majority of the planting is Pedro Ximenez. They also have long term contracts with growers for an additional 400 hectares of vineyards. The Cordoba wineries produce a large selection of both dry and sweet wines whose main characteristic is balance, elegance and finesse. Perez Barquero is one of the the highest quality producers is Montilla-Moriles. Vineyards are located in the most valued high quality zones of the Sierra de Montilla and Moriles Alto Soils are richly layer in organic remains which contributes to optimal maturing of the grape Vineyards in this region consist mainly of Pedro Ximenez (PX) vines. This vine is original from the Rin valley and was introduced in Montilla by a soldier called Pedro Ximenez, back in the XV century. The PX grape is white, round, with a very thin skin, almost transparent, delicate and very sensitive to wet climates. The PX grape is very rich in sugar (high Baume degree) Montilla-Moriles is a Spanish Denominacion de Origen (DO) for wines located in the southern part of the province of Cordoba (Andalusia, Spain). It is bounded by the river Genil to the east, by the river Guadajoz to the west, by the river Guadalquivir to the north, and by the Subbetic Range of mountains to the south." Importer
