Owner description: Intimately linked to Bodegas la Sangre de Ronda, we have created and maintain the Ronda Wine Interpretation Center. Our Center is born from the deepest love of wine and coherent with our philosophy as a winery. Its purpose is to investigate and disseminate viticulture and oenology practices, as well as the rich historical and cultural legacy that wine has generated over many centuries. A place open to all types of public with multiple activities related to what wine means: art, culture and history. Located in the historical center, in a Roman winery with more than a thousand years of history that later became a palace house. This building has now been converted into a magnificent Interpretation Center of more than 1000m2, with twelve theme rooms that offer a walk through the history and culture of wine, a product associated with mythology and religion, with a strong social presence and whose precise elaboration, both in the field and in the winery, of works that collect the essence of

The wine drinking area with snacks was nicely laid out - the white wine on the tables was Muscatel and to say tap into the walls for the red wine was true.
The red wine to me was a little stronger than the white and we enjoyed them both.
Wel worth a visit, to drink the wines.

went here as part of a tour of the old town whilst on a day trip with Thomsons. Entry included with cost of trip. You are given a small plastic cup & can help yourself to as much wine as you like, from taps in the wall, similar to outdoor water tap in the garden. They also give out crips & cheesy biscuits. Upstairs there is a museum.

Despite the name, there is little reason to come to the Museo del Vino de Ronda for the museum. For €12/person, you have what turns out to be an almost all-you-can-drink of 6 different wines and "tastings" of three more. The process is relatively simple: you enter into what looks like a gift shop and make the selection of what level of tasting you want (there is at least one cheaper option where you do not get the extra tasting of the three local wines). The museum "guide" briefly goes over the directions (this is this, taste from here, museum is there), hands you a plastic glass, some snacks and a jug of water, and then disappears. You're then free to pour yourself as much or as little wine as you prefer.

While not the best wine in the world, it is better than we expected it to be (the sherry in particular), and it's easy to drink a little too much. The museum is mostly just an advertisement for the regional wines and processes, with most (but for some reason not all), or the signs in both English and Spanish. There are a few "interactive" parts as well, but overall the museum is mostly just good to give yourself a little time between wines. There's also a small historic wine cellar which is neat looking, but again nothing to make a specific visit for.

Following the free-for-all tasting, you go back into a small room with some tables & chairs for the final tasting of the three regional wines. This tasting is guided, and you get a short explanation for each pour. We were poured relatively large drinks for a "tasting," and given a small basket of crisps too. The wines were nice but not particularly spectacular, though we did have a chance to order one of them later at a restaurant.

There's honestly not a lot to do in Ronda, and if you're looking for a way to pass an hour or so, this is a great place to stop by. It's certainly a "tourist trap," but one you're not going to regret walking into.

The museum gives you a glass and lets you pour from the barrels for three wines and four kinds of sherry and then gives you a full glass of two reds and a white from the local winery which weren't bad. There is nobody monitoring your wine drinking from the barrels- you are free to take what you like and stroll through the small museum which is more of an advertisement for the local wine industry but has some cool costumes and the biggest bota bags for wine that we have ever seen - like the size of a cow! The atmosphere is laid back - the guide who sits at the front desk as well as explaining the wine tasting after you finish tasting from the barrels is pleasant and speaks reasonable english.

These are not fine napa valley wines, but if you want a local tasting and particularly a good sherry tasting, the price is good and you can pick and choose what you like and get some crackers and chips to boot. Pretty nice way to pass an hour, although you might walk out a bit tipsy.

We spent an enjoyable hour in this small museum just off the beaten track in Ronda. This was the first time I received an education with a glass of wine( first of several) in my hand. At school/university we had to wait till the classes were over!

Auxi, the museum guide, provided both the commentary and a description of the wines ( 7 in all).

After the introduction and questions answered we were free to sample the wines and view the small, traditional cellar and the other museum exhibits.

A pleasant interlude either out of the sun or the winter rain.
