Wine tasting tours and visiting a winery in Ronda.

Where to find a wine tour in Ronda?

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.
