Botani
Spain, Malaga
Bodegas Jorge Ordóñez Malaga, located in Ordóñez’s hometown, was founded in 2004. It is a result of the collaboration between Jorge Ordóñez and the late Alois Kracher, the world famous Austrian winemaker. The goal of the winery was to resuscitate the centuries long tradition of winemaking in Jorge’s hometown, which was destroyed by the phylloxera plague in the 19th century. It was Jorge’s dream to dormant wine industry in Málaga and restore it to its former glory. The winery has more than accomplished its goal by producing the Spain’s first and best dry Moscatel de Alejandría, Botani, and by reviving the tradition of unfortified sweet wine making in Málaga. Our series of sweet wines, N°s 1 through 4, the best from Málaga, are amongst the finest in the world, and are produced in the style of the unfortified sweet wines of Málaga that were internationally renowned in the 17th through 19th centuries. Ordóñez and Kracher were the first to produce an unfortified sweet wine in modern times. The history of viticulture in Málaga stretches back to the Bronze age, when 3,000 years ago Phoenician traders transplanted Muscat of Alexandria from Egypt to Spain. These were the first vineyards ever planted in Spain, around the village of Malaka (present day Málaga), which they founded as well.
