Jerez (sherry in English and xérès in French) refers to several Spanish wines grown in the Andalusian cities of Jerez de la Frontera, El Santa María and Santa Luca de Barrameda, although the wines from their production areas also include wines from the municipalities from Chiclana de la Frontera, Chipiona, Puerto Real, Rota, Trebuena and Le Brigia (the latter in the province of Seville). The geographical area made up of the production area and the sherry aging area is called Marco de Jerez. This winemaking know-how is a key element of urban history and of the cultural characteristics of its neighbors that constitute the framework.
"Marco de Jerez" is a Spanish wine-growing region located in the provinces of Cádiz and Seville in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, where Jerez is produced and raised. It is made up of Jerez de la Frontera (which bears his name), Sanluca de la Barrameda, Puerto de Santa María, Trebuena, Chiclana De La Frontera, Puerto Real, Rota, Chipiona and Le Brigia (the only family in the province) make up Seville) . It is divided into two different areas, namely "production area" and "breeding area". The producing area is made up of Jerez, Sanlúcar, El Puerto, Trebuena, Chiclana, Puerto Real, Rota, Chipiona and Le Brija, while the breeding area is limited to Herez Reis, Sanlúcar and Puerto Rico. Likewise, the production area is divided into "Jerez Winners" and "Jerezona".
