The province of Seville has an important wine tradition based, mainly, on the production of white wines, grape juices, brandies and liquors. The rich heritage and the beauty of the unique natural landscapes of the province of Seville combine with its unique gastronomy and wine production to create an unbeatable tourist destination.
The province of Seville is a fertile land that has promoted the cultivation of a great variety of products since ancient times. As part of one of the Roman provinces, its gastronomy and its wines are the result of what the climate, the soil, the varieties used and the human action have achieved since previous times. It is also a fundamental pillar of the tourist offer of our territory, which, since time immemorial, has been reminiscent of wine, moonshine and liquors that have not only survived the passing of the centuries and the many civilisations that have lived here, but have also been enriched by the many cultures that have made their contribution to the alchemy of the vine.
As a result of this heritage, the cultivation of vines and the production of good wines has spread throughout Seville. That is why we propose a detailed tour of the wine-producing areas of the province of Seville. Four regions, Aljarafe, Sierra Morena, Guadalquivir-Doñana and Campiña Sevillana, which are distinguished by their orography, their vineyards, their noble vines of different types of grapes and, of course, their wines, signs of identity of the towns that make up a province full of nuances.
The deep-rooted wine-making tradition of this region is mainly based in the towns of Los Palacios y Villafranca, Lebrija and Utrera. Young white wines are produced here, such as the traditional wines of Jerez, as well as sweets wines renowned for their prestige thanks to the various prizes and awards. But there is much more. We are in a land of important irrigated crops and extensive rice paddies that allow to combine the agri-food industry with the breeding and training of horses, which are world-renowned.
This is an area with a deep-rooted wine-making tradition where Los Palacios y Villafranca and Lebrija are, par excellence, the towns with the greatest wine production in the region.
At Bodega Las Nieves, in Los Palacios y Villafranca, after a commitment to local grapes and a renovation and modernisation of its facilities, you will have the chance to try its new varieties of rosé, its Señorío de las Nieves and a semi-sweet wine obtained from fermetning the must in flower.
Bodegas González Palacios, located in Lebrija, invite you to enter its vineyards and cellars offering tastings and samplings of its wines. Innovation is one of its dogmas from the restructuring of the vineyards to the acquisition of state-of-the-art machinery to produce high quality wines. It is also worth walking through the courtyards, gardens and walls of Bodegas Halcón, tasting a glass of wine in one of the most emblematic architectures of Lebrija's Cultural Heritage.
Next, Destilería La Flor in Utrera offers you the chance to learn about the evolution of its distillery to the present day, the processes of distillation and production of anisette and to taste different varieties of its anisettes.
