Montilla-Moriles wine-tasting Festival (Cordoba)

The valleys in the south of the province of Córdoba are the home of the well-known wines from the Montilla-Moriles Denominacion de Origen (name of origin). There are several types, such as Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream, Pedro Ximénez, Blanco Joven (Young White) and organic wines. The dominant grape is the white Pedro Ximénez variety, which accounts for over 80% of the area planted with vines. These wines are matured in American oak casks or barrels, in areas called criaderas or soleras and using the technique known as velo de flor, consisting of a thick layer of yeast left floating on the surface, which gives the wines of Montilla-Moriles their distinctive flavour.

For 38 years the Montilla-Moriles wine-tasting Festival has been held in Cordoba, over 20 bodegas (wine-cellars) take part, and the people of Cordoba come in their droves to taste the local wines and traditional tapas. There is also music to liven up the atmosphere and a variety of events, including special wine-tasting events organised by professional wine-tasters, open to visitors who apply.

However, and due to a current rethinking of the model of this successful event, the 2023 Montilla-Moriles wine-tasting Festival is the last one that has been held so far. In 2024, the organisation has decided to put it on hold to later communicate what the path to follow will be in the coming years.
