La Ola del Melillero is mainly produced from Pedro Ximenez (PX) grapes from the Natural Park Montes de Malaga. It comes from small plots of between 30 and 100 years old, in the Malaga municipality, almost hidden in a Mediterranean forest of holm oaks, cork oaks and Aleppo pines. The muscatel grapes come from six plots in two municipalities of the Upper Axarquía region, located at the foothills of The Natural Park Sierra Tejeda.
These are dry farmed, mountain vineyards located at an altitude between 800 and 1,000 m. It is an extremely steep topography, with slopes of between 46 and 76%. that requires manual labour using age-old viticulture techniques. In these conditions, the yields are very low (900-1000 kg/ha), but the concentration of the berry is optimal for making quality wines.
