The first news of the wine of Jerez it provides His Estrabón, Greek geographer of the 1st century to. C.. In his book Geography (Book IIIrd) Estrabón was writing that the grapevines jerezanas were brought to the region by the Phoenicians about the year 1100 B.C. Recently two presses have been found in the Phoenician deposit of Dona Blanca's Castle, to 4 kms. of Sherry, which they date back to the 4th century B.C. It confirms that they were the same founders of the former Gades (Cadiz) those who brought up to our lands, from the distant Lebanon, the art of cultivating the grapevine and of elaborating the wine. From Xera, name that the Phoenicians gave to the region where today Jerez is located, this people of merchants was producing wines that then were distributed by the whole Mediterranean, Specially in Rome. Greeks and Carthaginians also wrote important pages in the history of the region, which sinks this way his roots in the deepest of the Mediterranean culture, the culture of the wine and of the moderation. About 138 B.C. Escipión Emiliano appeased the Andalusia, giving beginning to the Roman domination, and beginning a commercial very important current of products of this region towards the metropolis. The natives of Cadiz were selling to Rome olive oil, wine of Ceret's region and garum, a species of sauce pickles. Already in those days the reputation of the "Vinum Ceretensis" was penetrating our borders and was estimated not only in Rome, but in other many corners of the Empire, since numerous archaeological remains prove it, in the shape of amphorae, which were marked according to his content for fiscal reasons.
