We must admit, we do love a good glass of wine, and there’s no better way to further your understanding of all things ‘vino’ than with a wine tour!
Malaga may be more famous for its sweet wines and sherries (think Pedro Ximenez or Moscatel) but in recent years the region has undergone a revolution of sorts. With delicious and sophisticated red and white wines coming from areas such as Ronda, Malaga now boasts one of the most diverse, up and coming wine scenes in the whole of Spain!
Consider yourself somewhat of a wine aficionado, or simply you would like to taste a variety of delicious wines from the southern region? Check out our list of Malaga wine tours that we love, and add one of them to your Andalusian adventure!

A Tannin Trail Wine and Food Tour gives you a great insight into Andalusian wine, right in the heart of some of the region’s most fascinating wineries. With doorstep pick-up in Malaga city center, you’ll travel in style to local boutique vineyards where passionate professionals will show you the true art of winemaking.
Perhaps their most popular tour is the Red Wine Lovers Tour, a full day trip to nearby Ronda, which includes red, white and rosé wine tastings at two vineyards in the region. Each glass of wine comes with carefully selected tapas pairings, and if you’re still hungry after all those tasty treats, you can opt in for lunch straight from the winemaker’s kitchen to finish off the day! Alternatively, you’ll be given time to explore beautiful Ronda and the fascinating Moorish architecture of the city.
