The wines of Malaga, nurtured by the same blazing sun and Mediterranean mist that make the city’s raisins the best in the world, have been drawing praise for nearly 800 years. In what was perhaps the first wine festival and competition, organized by King Philippe Auguste of France in 1224, the vintage from Spain’s southern coast was designated Cardinal of Wines.
