We offer you the opportunity to spend a lovely day visiting a winery at the Ronda Mountains and enjoying a segway ride.
Bodega Cortijo MOROSANTO
Bodegas Morosanto, founded in 2005 by Miguel Ángel Céspedes, is located in the old Cortijo Morosanto farmhouse in La Cimada, Ronda, on the headwaters of the Guadalcobacín River basin, at the foot of the Sierra de las Cumbres and just 10 km from the Roman city of Acinipo.
The estate is around 30 hectares, mainly given over to growing vines, with some olive trees and holm oaks on the hillside which occupies part of the plot of land.
The great geotechnical features of the land can clearly be seen in the fact the Morosanto already produced wine between the 1st and 6th centuries, discovered thanks to the study carried out of the ruins found here of a typically Roman villa, with an urban area and another for industry.

The winery has a real archaeological jewel, at the foot of the mountain sits one of the most characteristic deposits Iberian settlement in the area.
Perhaps due to its long life as a settlement, some difficult-to-assign elements, surely Roman and possibly from the earl Roman period, can be found; for others meanwhile, the difficulty arises not from dating but rather from their contextual link, such as the case of the likely Islamic burial sites for which a farmstead or settlement has yet to be found.
Morosanto is one of those villas where the large spread of the facilities and their monumental nature can be seen, to such an extent that it is complicated to delimit land where a settlement like this is located – a true miniature city with remnants of wine production dating to the 1st century b.c., although until present the only evidence of this was the coins minted in the city of Acinipo where a bunch a grapes appears.
