Yesterday's visit to this magnificently situated Bodega started with a warm and delightful welcome from Flavio who chatted with us while we waited for others to join our tour. He then handed us over to the very knowledgeable and humerous Miguel who showed us around and delighted our taste buds with very generous samples of some of the most delicious reds I have ever experienced. Joy joy and more joy. Put this place on your Ronda list if you like great wine, stunning scenery, interesting characters and fun.

While travelling through Andalusia , you don't think of winery visiting at a first glance . But we were in Ronda , and had the chance to visit Descalzos Viejos , hosted by Flavio Salesi and made our time in Ronda even more enjoyable .
The site was a former monastery and Flavio is very proud of its heritage , which makes the visit a must in Ronda .
Regarding the wine , I would recommend the Santa Rufina , part of DV family .

This was our favorite thing from our 10 day trip to Andalusia! It's not far at all from the central area of Ronda and very easy to get to. The views are breathtaking! We toured the property and got to try a bunch of different fruits right off the tree. Then we tasted wine and enjoyed the cheese and meats. They were extremely welcoming and the wine was fantastic. It was such a relaxed and fun experience in a magical setting I can't recommend it enough!

One of my favorite experiences traveling in Spain. Hung out at the beautiful winery drinking great wine with the friendly and kind host. Turns out we both love Nirvana.

If you get the chance to meet Flavio, one of the owners, and have some wine and a tour - don't miss the chance! It will be one of the highlights of your stay in Ronda. We much enjoyed the beautiful grounds, the wine-tasting and the hospitality. Be sure to make an appointment and don't miss it!
