If you are a lover of good Cadiz wine, you cannot miss a visit to some winery in Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, El Puerto de Santa María, Chiclana de la Frontera, Arcos de la Frontera, Chipiona or Rota during your getaway to the province of Cadiz.
For some years, the main Cadiz wineries have chosen to be open to the public, carrying out lots of guided tours where you can learn everything about their wines. Besides, you can enjoy a fantastic wine tasting after the visit.
Wineries are a unique place to learn all the process of wine making, where you can see and get to know everything about harvesting, grinding, fermentation, stand, separation of must from lees and alcoholization, aging, clarification and refrigeration, bottling and storage of these worldwide known wines.
All this extensive process requires large areas with special structures that ensure the ideal conditions for winemaking. Some of them are located in impressive monumental complexes, built by important architects and engineers such as Gustave Eiffel or Eduardo Torroja.
It is interesting the relation created between the wine industry in Cadiz and the citizenship, since symbols initially created for a specific advertising purpose are assumed and accepted as belonging to a society or a people. A worldwide known symbol of Spain is undoubtedly the Osborne bull, built in 1956.
