There are many gates within the complex. This is the Puerts Del Vino. I believe it was the entrance to the wine yard. It was built early in the 14th centery. What an amazing place.

This busy Gate of Wine is an inner gate providing access to the Alcazaba fortress.

It was built at the beginning of the 14th century, during the time of Sultan Muhammad III.

The Puerta del Vino, Gate of Wine, stands next to the Palace of Carlos Quinto, on the promenade above the Gate of Justice, and was once part of an inner wall which divided the palaces from the city of the Alhambra. My wife and I visited as part of a larger guided tour and found the experience remarkable indeed.

There are a lot of gateways throughout the Alhambra complex. If you arrive via the Gate of Justice, the path will bring you up alongside the Charles V Palace and this smaller gateway is to your left.
You don't need a ticket to walk around this part of the Alhambra complex.
The Puerta del Vino is less impressive than the Gate of Justice but that’s because it was not a major gateway. It was part of the inner wall only and therefore didn't serve as a heavy-duty defence. Every day at sundown, it was closed to separate the palaces from the city.
It is more decorative and and less utilitarian, than the Gate of Justice. One side has pretty blue tiles and the other side is plainer. Unfortunately, I didn't realise this until later so I only have photos of the plainer side.
It is uncertain why it is called the Gate of Wine. It may have been used in the 16th century to store wine but it is most likely that it was just a mistranslation of the Arabic word.

This is probably the oldest surviving construction within the complex of "La Alhambra y Generalife". It is referred to as "Puerta del Vino" (Wine Gate), but its name could have been mistaken in the various tanslations along the centuries. It could be probably known as the "Red Gate", as it led the way to the higher and inner parts of "La Alhambra", or simply "The Red One", as "La Alhambra" is known in Arabic. But it doesn't matter any more, as "Puerta del Vino" is actually the gateway to "Plaza de los Aljibes" (Square of the Cisterns), very near the old fortress of the "Alcazaba". You'll probably pass under this horseshoe arch very many times while visiting awesome "La Alhambra". Enjoy!

As you enter this gate you get a sense of the history and scale of this complex. Take time to wander and take in all aspects of this magnificent World Heritage Site.

Just before reaching the gate you pass the building on your left which houses luggage lockers, sandwich/drinks vending machines and toilets. When we visited, the surrounding area was crowded with bored teenagers milling around - Plaza de Los Aljibes on the other side of the gate is quite peaceful by comparison and leads towards Alcazaba entrance. The plaza is quite large, with snack hut in the middle, seating on surrounding walls and numerous cats wandering around hopeful for some tit bits.

Puerta del Vino is one of the small gates inside the Alhambra. It was preserved when many of the buildings in this part were demolished to make way for the palace.

The first stop of the guided tour group was at this place. The restroom is located next to this gate. You can have some snacks, drink or souvenir. This gate has a combination of two cultures, Moslim and Christian. The small window represent the christian and the wide one above the gate is the moslim. Though the name with "Vino", this gate has absolutely nothing to do with wine.
