Ronda and Malaga wine route



The Ronda and Malaga Wine Route currently runs through the municipalities of Arriate, Cómpeta, El Borge, Manilva, Moclinejo, Mollina, Ronda, Sayalonga and Almáchar in the province of Malaga. It covers four wine-making areas in all: Axarquía, Serranía de Ronda, Manilva and Zona Norte, which fall under three Designations of Origin: Málaga DO, Sierras de Málaga DO and Pasas de Málaga DO.The potential of the patchwork of territories making up the route is more than impressive. Wine has been made here since Phoenician and Roman times, and the local historic, cultural and natural heritage is exceptional. All this, together with the broad diversity of tourist attractions and leisure options that the destination has to offer make for an unrivalled visitor experience.

What are the wines like?

The Ronda and Malaga Wine Route is home to the Protected Designations of Origin ‘Málaga’, ‘Sierras de Málaga’ and ‘Pasas de Málaga’. It’s located in the province of Malaga, and comprises different sub-zones and wine producing areas.Each Designation of Origin protects different wines. So within the ‘Málaga’ Protected Designation of Origin we find: sweet and dry still wines, and fortified wines.In the ‘Sierras de Málaga’ Protected Designation of Origin we find: whites, rosés, reds and sweet reds. Within this protected designation of origin there is a sub-zone called ‘Serranía de Ronda’, and six wine producing areas.The ‘Pasas de Málaga’ Protected Designation of Origin, this is made from raisins obtained by drying mature Moscatel de Málaga or Moscatel de Alejandría grapes in the sun; they are harvested and dried in the Axarquía region, or in the sub-zone of Manilva. This way of drying the grapes naturally in the sun is traditional in this zone, and is the only method permitted by the Regulation, ensuring that the product retains those organoleptic characteristics that make it unrivalled in flavour, texture and colour.
