More than just tasting.
You don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to improve your wine knowledge, but Ronda is the perfect place for it. There are more than 25 varietals* of grapes approved by the appellation board for this small region, so even on two tastings you will be getting to sample and learn about very different grapes and wines.
The vineyard tours, and wine tastings offered by the wineries themselves are quite extensive, however they usually concentrate on a small selection of wines.
Our Tannin Trail tastings at the same wineries, on the other hand, are even more in-depth with our own proprietary wine tasting material, both printed and soon available on our app, and we can also get to sample wines not normally offered in the standard winery tastings.
At the very least, not only can you can expect to learn about the winemaking process, different flavours in wine, the differences in American and French oak – but minimal intervention winemaking and the absence of chemicals and additives as well.
*Approved varietals. White: Moscatel de Alejandría, Moscatel Morisco (Moscatel de grano menudo), Chardonnay, Macabeo, Colombard, Sauvignon Blanc, Lairen y Doradilla, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Verdejo, Viognier & Pedro Ximenez.

Some wineries also have spectacular results with “non-approved” varietals of grapes, although wines produced with these grapes cannot be officially labelled as “Ronda or Malaga wines.
