Finca La Melonera is one of Ronda´s most fascinating wineries.  This is an organic winery that revived the indigineous grapes that were wiped out by phylloexera plague in the late 19th century.   The winery is a contemporary building overlooking the beautiful countryside and the vineyards.  The 4 hour tour of the Winery will begin with a walk through the vineyards where your guide will explain the task of recuperating the lost grape varieties and difference of growing conditions on the estate according to different altitudes and soil conditions.

Visitors will be given a tasting of white wines under a beautiful oak tree in the vineyard.  From there the tour will continue and you will be taken to the barrel room where the wine making process will be explained.  Finally your tour of the winery will end with a wine tasting accompanied by a full meal in the bodega dining room. You will then be driven back to Malaga to board your ship for departure.
