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.

The Tourist Ticket (The best way to visit Rondas top attractions)

When you get to Ronda (even if you have found Ronda Today useful) the first place on your lisit of visits should be the Tourist Office which is located by the bull ring (Plaza de Toros.) It is here that the English speaking staff can give you the most up to date info on whats going on in Ronda such as concerts, exhibitions and sell you the “tourist ticket”.

But, also they can sell you the “Tourist Ticket” (Bono Turístico in Spanish.) This one price ticket allows you access to some of the “on the list” places to visit in Ronda. http://www.turismoderonda.es/en/heritage-and-culture/cultural-activities

Prices are 8 euros per adult (6.50 if you have a group of 10 or more people) and under 14 years olds are free.

You can buy the Tourist Tickets  in the Municipal Tourist Office, in Paseo Blás Infante, opposite the Bull Ring.

This ticket is highly recommended if you are planning to visit these places anyway as there is a saving of 3 to 5 euros per person (enough saving to spend on a nice tapas :)

For opening times and prices of museums and other monuments in Ronda, try this link.  On the municipal Tourist office in Ronda. Under the heading “Timetables” you will see “Schedule of the museums and monuments (Spanish-English) and tourist pass
