A country club in the heart of Ronda’s beautiful valley scenery is the natural continuation of the golf and country clubs that mark the upper end of Marbella. Set half an hour’s drive along the same road that passes La Zagaleta, The Wine and Country Club is the ultimate lifestyle expression for connoisseurs of the good things in life.

The Wine and Country Club: A Unique Lifestyle

In blending the best of country life, natural beauty and the style and comfort of a luxurious villa in the Ronda valleys with the concierge community services of a gated wine estate with 24h security, as well as easy access to Marbella and the coastal region, The Wine and Country Club is an ideal option for people who enjoy both country living and refinement. Only 5,5 kilometres from the lovely historic town of Ronda, the rustic estate is also just an hour from Marbella’s beaches, golf clubs and amenities, as well as 75 minutes from Málaga’s international airport – which can be reached by chauffeur-driven transit service or indeed by helicopter shuttle.

Such facilities are available at this low-key yet high-standard boutique country living environment, where owners choose a private 5–7-hectare domain of land where renowned architects Torras y Sierra design a contemporary Andalusian country villa for them amid gently sloping vineyards, cork oak, olive trees and pine groves. The country properties thus created form part of a select gated community that offer supreme peace and privacy in combination with the benefits of a managed country estate with a full range of concierge services. These include, among others, housekeeping, garden and maintenance, as well as providing chauffeurs, private chefs, yoga and Pilates classes, event organising of golf bookings at any of the region’s courses.

The estate’s winery focuses on organic cultivation and recuperating traditional Andalusian grape varieties. It has been recognised as being of Special Andalusian Interest and enjoys CAAE environmental certification and the 2015 Premio Andalucía award for sustainability, for the production of wines such as Payoya Negra and Yo Solo, which have consistently scored 93 and 95 points respectively. The production of these ecological wines – produced both within the estate and on the private land of the villa properties – is managed entirely by the winery and its experienced oenologist Ana de Castro, meaning that the maintenance of the vineyards is carried out on behalf of the owners, who receive bottles of their own wine variety.

La Melonera, the award-winning winery named after one of the estate’s indigenous grape varieties, includes a bodega with top of the range facilities, which forms the point of reference for the community. The running of the winery, country club and overall infrastructure is taken care of by the management company, whose concierge department provides the services highlighted above, as well as a further range of bespoke options designed for the needs of owners and their guests.

The Wine and Country Club offers a unique opportunity to live in a community that celebrates the good things in life.
