Just a kilometre away from the madding crowds of the western Costa del Sol, swing in through the gates to Finca Cortesin's 500-hectare estate and discover a very different world. Indulgent luxury coupled with genuine Andaluz allure. Cortesin numbers amongst southern Europe's finest golf hotels and has hosted several international tournaments whilst being home to a Jack Nicklaus academy. The hotel's design and décor, gardens and suites, spa and pools are every bit as seductive, as it is the cuisine of its remarkable Kabuki Raw restaurant.
While you stay in Finca Cortesin, take a day break from golfing and explore a winery in Ronda.
The winery is the only one among over 28 wineries in the area that cultivates organic wines with a twist: they offer wines revived from indigenous grape varietals that were almost wiped out during the phylloxera plague in the late 19th century.
Your day trip into all thing's wine begins as your driver guide picks you up from your hotel in Marbella and takes you along a 1.5-hour comfortable journey through the stunning and picturesque Andalusian countryside dotted with typical white villages and landscapes filled with olive, orange, almond and avocado trees.
Upon arrival at the winery you will start your 2-hour winery tour with a walk through the spacious vineyards as your expert guide explains how they recovered the lost grape varietals. You will also learn about the different soils and altitudes on the estate and the vital role they play in wine growing conditions. You will then be guided to the barrel room where you will learn the secrets of the wine making process.
Finish your tour with a delicious wine tasting and a variety of handcrafted tapas as you savor incredible scenic views of the vineyards and surrounding countryside, a truly magical landscape.
We will pick you up in the morning and be back in the afternoon. This will be both an educational and fun experience.
