We were greeted by Flavio Sales, one of the owners, who said we were not going to have a standard wine tour. He was absolutely correct. He gave us a tour of virtually the whole place and served some excellent nibbles and great wine...along with his pontificating on a variety of subjects. We had a great time.

Starting with our greeting and extensive tour with co-owner Flavio Salesi, my wife and I spent about three hours touring, talking and sipping his exquisite wines. We've toured at least a hundred wineries, both US and abroad, but this was one of the finest overall experiences. And thank you Flavio for the recommendation of lunch in Ronda at Toro Tapas.

A tour operator set up this visit for a small group I was leading. It was a home run - the place is beautiful, quaint, very unique and the wine was really good. Miguel was a fantastic host and I wished we could have stayed there all day. Definitely worth a visit on a trip to Ronda.
