Origin / Sanlúcar de Barrameda
If one thing defines Manzanilla, it’s undoubtedly its origin. Together, the sun, the sea, the low-lying wetlands and the Poniente (easterly) winds all create a unique setting on the shores of the Atlantic on the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula, a place called Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
Nestled in a place of extraordinary natural beauty between the mouth of the Guadalquivir River and Doñana National Park, this little coastal town is home to many world-renowned cultural and gastronomic landmarks, one of these being Manzanilla with its unequivocal character and expression.
Owing to the exceptional geographic and climatic conditions surrounding it, Manzanilla de Sanlúcar is so entirely unique, unlike any other wine in the world. It has a personality all its own in which bold and subtle, intensity and finesse, complexity and elegance all converge.

in the land…
and the sea.
Three elements of nature define Sanlúcar’s unique microclimate: the Guadalquivir River, the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby wetlands.
