Established in early 2001, it is one of the newest appellations in the country. It shares the same geographical area as Málaga, but is allowed to produce a wider range of varieties and lighter, unfortified wines – a response to growing market demands for young wines. Sierras means "mountain ranges" in Spanish, so the DO's name is fitting, given its mostly mountainous terrain. The climate, unsurprisingly, is heavily influenced by the Mediterranean sea as well as the hot and dry conditions that prevail inland.
