Over the last few years the wineries (“bodegas” in Spanish) of Ronda have greatly increased their production and are going through what can only be described as a “boom time”. There are over 20 excellent vineyards producing Red, Rosé and white wines with the denomination of origin “Wines of Malaga” (Malaga being the province that Ronda belongs to.) Many of the wineries are open to the public for wine tasting tours and some even provide full lunches and dinners with matched wines to the food courses.
Bodegas la Sangre de Ronda.
If you are in Ronda then this is probably the best place to start as they have there own wine museum and interpretation centre located on the street called Gonzalez Campos (number 2.) This wine company obviously has a great passion for wine and their philosophy as a winery is to investigate and share viticulture and oenology practices.
Just a few kilometres from Ronda in the general direction of Acinipo you will find the vineyard F.Shatz Spread out southwards over a gentle slope with views towards the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves. Hailing from a wine growing family in the Wuerttemberg region of Germany, Friedrich Schatz chose Ronda as the base for his new winery on the Ronda-Acinipo Road. F. Schatz has since become known for their organic wines, Lemberger (Bodega Schatz is the only vineyard in Spain to produce single-variety wines of these grapes.), Chardonnay, and Muskattrollinger. All grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small containers to prevent breaking of the skins. Fruitiness and natural earthy aromas are the hallmark of F. Schatz wines.

Back in 2009 Cruzcampo’s premium product, the Gran Reserva won gold at the awards for the World’s Best Strong Lager, and whilst the beer is available for sale internationally there can be no doubt enjoying an ice cold glass in Spain is preferable.
Even in winter if the sun is shining you’ll see connoisseurs of fine lagers sipping the Gran Reserva appreciatively with a plate of Jamon Iberica and Queso Curado in front of them. Ronda’s Plaza del Socorro, the Plaza Alameda, or Calle Comandante Salvador Carrasco are three of the best locations for enjoying the sun all year round.
