The origin of everything. The soul of the company. Barbadillo is south and sea. It is Cadiz and it is west wind. It is Sanlúcar and it is tradition. It is a century-old winery and it is the future. Its history dates back to 1821, the year in which it began to produce manzanilla. Since then Barbadillo has not stopped evolving, always looking for wines that surprise and leave their mark.
It is named after the plant ‘Tamarix Gallica’, which is very common on the coast of Cadiz as it is perfectly adapted to areas near the sea with saline and humid soils. It is a plant that stabilises sandy soils and helps to fix dunes. In fact, its orangey-pinkish colour, especially in autumn, matches the tone of the ‘muscatel with skins’ to which it will henceforth give its name. If illustrations were used for ‘Sábalo’ and ‘Patinegro’, for the label of ‘Tamarix’ they have opted to recover cyanotype, a technique from almost two centuries ago that can be said to be the precursor of photography.
