History, tradition and innovation rule at family winery Bodegas Alvear, where eight generations have stewarded the unique wines of DO Montilla-Moriles. The Andalusian sun shines down unmercifully on DO Montilla-Moriles in southern Córdoba, the hottest and driest wine region in Spain. Harsh as they seem, these climatic conditions, when combined with local soils and the special characteristics of the white Pedro Ximénez grape variety – which accounts for 95% of all vineyards here – give rise to unique and treasured Spanish wines that are savored in Spain and many other corners of the world. The final ingredient in this recipe for success? The knowledge, culture and winemaking traditions of this centuries-old region, and the dedication of those who preserve its legacy. In this regard, we need look no further than Bodegas Alvear, a local winery that was founded here in 1729. We spoke to the winery’s executive president Fernando Giménez Alvear, the eighth generation of the Alvear family to lead this project.
