Jerez - Location and history
JEREZ is located in southwestern Andalusia, in the province of Huelva, bordering on Cadiz to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the east. The city was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC, and was later ruled by the Greeks and the Romans. In the Middle Ages it became a Muslim stronghold, and was sacked by the Christian armies of Ferdinand and Isabella in 1248. The city was reconquered by the Muslims in 1276, and JEREZ served as the capital of the taifa of Seville until 1492.
