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 museums of Ronda are a delightful way to spend a few hours for both holiday makers and residents alike. Children will love the Lara Museum, while adults may prefer the museum of wine. Art aficionados will positively love the collection of Joaquin Peinado.
Ronda Municipal Museum.
Located in the historic Mondragon Palace (Palacio de Mondragon), the Municipal Museum of Ronda details Rondas history from the stone age to the present time with some very well made exhibits such as the Pileta Cave reconstruction, the stone age hut, iron age technology including sword making, the Roman period with an important exhibit on Acinipo, Moorish Ronda including a detailed exhibit of Arab funeral rites, and a very interesting display on life in Ronda’s heyday, the 17th and 18th centuries.
