Private Wines of Ronda and Winery Tour

The area around Ronda has been known for winemaking since Phoenician times and a trip to the unique Finca La Melonera doesn't disappoint! From the Phoenicians in the eighth century BC, the Greeks and Romans to the Moors and later the British, all have been enthusiastic drinkers of Malaga wines.

This winery is the only one among over 28 wineries in the area that cultivates organic wines with a twist: they offer wines revived from indigenous grape varietals that were almost wiped out during the phylloxera plague in the late 19th century.

Your excursion into all thing's vino begins as your driver-guide picks you up from the port and takes you along a 1.5-hour comfortable journey through the stunning and picturesque Andalusian countryside dotted with typical white villages and landscapes filled with olive, orange, almond and avocado trees.

Upon arrival at the Finca La Melonera you will start your 2-hour winery tour with a walk through the spacious vineyards, as your expert guide explains how they recovered the lost grape varietals. You will also learn about the different soils and altitudes on the estate and the vital role they play in wine-growing conditions. You will then be escorted to the barrel room where you will learn the secrets of the winemaking process.

Finish your tour with a delicious wine tasting and a variety of handcrafted tapas, as you savor incredible scenic views of the vineyards and surrounding countryside, a truly magical landscape.

Tap into your inner wine connoisseur with this remarkable trip through Ronda to the Finca La Melonera winery.
