The indigenous white variety clearly dominates with 80% of the total area Zalema, Other white wines are Palomino (the main sherry grape), Garrido Fino, Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez. In the 16th century, the area was the main supplier of wine to the newly discovered South American colonies. In the 17th century the wine was used in large quantities for the production of the Sherry in the neighboring, southeastern Jerez delivered (which is no longer allowed). Today, wines similar to sherry Fino and Oloroso are produced using a Solera process. Other products are Jovens (young wines) and Rancios, Experiments are increasingly being carried out with many types of red wine, such as the Monastrell.
