The genuine microclimate of the city is essential for the breeding of manzanilla, its most representative wine. It is raised in white oak barrels in the wineries of the town centre, the so-called “wine cathedrals”. They are perfectly integrated into the urban structure of Sanlúcar and the visit to any of them becomes very interesting.
