Ronda (Malaga). Gastronomic breakaway

Ernest Hemingway, Rainer María Rilke, Orson Welles, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Gerardo Diego, Alberti, García Lorca... The list of artists and intellectuals who have praised Ronda throughout history seems endless. Few destinations in the world can boast the natural beauty, the richness and uniqueness of its historical and cultural heritage, in which its Historic-Artistic Site was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1966.

To speak of Ronda is to speak of unparalleled cultural, natural and scenic resources, wine tourism, oil tourism and gastronomy, charming hotels, Tauro tourism, festivals and events of all kinds or sports and leisure activities (hiking, climbing, canyoning, cycle tourism, caving tourism, etc.).
Both in Ronda and in the surrounding area you will be able to choose from more than 20 wineries with different characteristics and suitable for all tastes.

What better way to enjoy its charm than to stay overnight, stroll through its streets, do some shopping and have another glass of wine.

The work in the vineyards as well as in the winery follows the criteria of organic agriculture. The elaboration of our award-winning wines is carried out in the winery itself, and with our own grapes. We offer 3 main types of crianza red wine. VINANA, a coupage of 4 French varieties that enhance their flavours in an amazing way, the 7VIN made with two varieties hardly known in Spain, Blaufraenkisch and Zweigelt and our MAXX wine, a product of the blending of the Spanish red Garnacha grape and the almost disappeared Andalusian native Tintilla de Rota. We also produce ROSARA, a fruity and tasty Rosé of high quality. All the wines are certified by the organic agriculture committee and biodynamic practices. And finally we produce EZEQUIEL.

    • History of the winery:
      Ecological and biodynamic winery, pioneer in the recovery of wine production in the Serrania de Ronda in 1982, when its founder Friedrich Shatz, at the age of 18, embarked on a journey with the purpose of setting up his own winery, becoming the pioneer in the production of wines in the Serrania de Ronda since the Phylloxera. After several years of travelling, he decided to choose our land, specifically the Finca Sanguijuela. There are several reasons for his decision, some of them could be its geographical location, about 10 km from the city, on a plateau 700 m above sea level, surrounded by the Sierra de Grazalema and the Sierra de las Nieves, which protects it from the winds and offers a stable rainfall and, another curious trigger that made him fall in love with this estate, is that it shares with him the initials of his name (FS).

  • WINERY LA MELONERA
    • History of the winery:
      The project of the bodega La Melonera winery is, to say the least, sophisticated and meritorious. This bodega in the Serrania is located on an estate of about 8 hectares full of centenary holm oaks and where the clearings between these holm oaks are used to plant the varieties with which this bodega works. These varieties make this bodega a special and unique place, as they pursue the objective of recovering all the native varieties of the Serranía de Ronda that we had before the agricultural catastrophe caused by the arrival of phylloxera in 1878. These varieties are, among others, the Perruna, the Corchera, the Blasco, the Tintilla de Rota and the most important for them and the one that gives its name to the winery, the Melonera.
    • Description of the visit:
      Reception at the entrance, where we explain the history of the winery and its research projects.
