In the province of Malaga. It includes 54 municipalities in the coastal area (around Malaga and Estepona) and inland (towards the banks of the river Genil) plus the new sub-area of the Serrania de Ronda, a region in which two new municipalities, Cuevas del Becerro and Cortes de la Frontera, have just been incorporated.


It varies depending on the production area. In the northern area summers are short and temperatures are high, rainfall is around 500 mm; in the Axarquia area, protected from the north winds by the mountain ranges and oriented to the midday, the climate is more temperate due to the influence of the Mediterranean; while in the west the climate can be defined as dry sub-humid.


They evolve from the red Mediterranean soils with limestone components of the northern zone to the decomposed and steeply sloping slates of the Axarquia.


Whites: DO Málaga: pedro ximénez, doradilla, lairen and moscatel; DO Sierras de Málaga: chardonnay, gewürtztraminer, riesling, verdejo, viognier, moscatel, pedro ximénez, macabeo and sauvignon blanc, colombard.

Reds: only DO Sierras de Málaga: romé, cabernet franc, garnacha tinta, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, tempranillo, graciano, malbec, monastrell, tintilla and petit verdot.


Their personality is marked by the "arrope", concentrated must or must dehydrated by heat, which caramelizes the wine and gives it its dark color, sweetness and characteristic pastiness. We can distinguish between "Malaga", a sweet wine made from the first must of the grape; Pedro Ximénez and Muscatel, both made from grapes of the same name.

Made from native and foreign varieties, they are marked by the warmth of the climate, especially in the case of the reds, very sunny and in some cases with "burnt" notes. The varietal florality of the muscatel and the singularity of the pinot noir stand out against the freshness and richness of the balsamic traits of the petit verdot. The new natural sweet whites offer pleasant musky and auvados aromas, and a very fresh and sweet mouth at the same time.
