Visit to a Historical Ronda Winery
Taste the flavor's of this unique region's wine in a historical winery
Enjoy a unique visit to this former convent founded in 1505, and a wine tasting with one of the owners of the winery. The building was long abandoned, subject to a slow process of degradation until 1998 when the current owners (the Retamero Salesi and families) bought the property and initiated a process of complete restoration to become home to the winery adjacent to the vineyards planted in the lower part of the property. The project has recovered the main building and its gardens, orchards, ponds, fountains and environment, thanks to a complete and thorough restoration, re-integrating and consolidating all the original architectural and artistic elements that can be recovered. Of particular interest is the emergence of frescos on the high altar, which under many layers of lime, chips and humidity, have miraculously survived. This vineyard is characterized by low temperatures in winter and high in summer, low rainfall and a rather rocky ground limestone and loamy nature. The varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Garnacha, Graciano, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
