wine tasting in Malaga/Southern Spain

We are really interested in exploring Spanish wine. Are there any wineries in the Malaga area or Southern Spain worth visiting. We are planning on visiting the wine museum. What are considered some of the top wines of Spain?

Malaga wine is like a sweet sherry: not for me personally. I like drier wines. Of course you can visit Jerez where the sherry is made. There they have a whole range of sherry from very dry to sweet. But Andalucia is not the best wine growing area of Spain. Rioja has the best wines, most people would say, and thats a long way from the south.. The problem with Andalucia is that everything grows here so easily and the best wines dont grow in those conditions. We have the biggest strawberries, for example, but they are nowhere near as good as the tiny wild strawberries you will find in the Pyrenees.

Malaga Wine is Sherry like but isn´t only sweet. The dry Fino is wonderful.

As posted above Rioja is often considered the best region for wine production. But please don’t discount all of the others. Here is a link to a web site that gives you more information about all the DO of the various wine producing regions.
