Vineyards and elaboration
There are 500 hectares of private vineyards, where the white varieties Palomino, Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay and the red varieties Tempranillo, Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Tintilla de Rota are grown. All of them are grown on Albariza soils, with both manual and mechanical harvesting.
The southern climate balances the area with the Atlantic one, which favours mild summers and winters, with high humidity due to the closeness to the sea, and significant yearly rainfalls, together with high sunshine.
Barbadillo surname dates back to 1821. It is a centenary winery yet with future. This winery has 17 ageing cellars in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and a plant of white and red grapes wine production. That is why Bodegas Barbadillo is one of the biggest wineries of the Sherry Triangle.
