What you'll do
Wine is bottled poetry. Robert Louis Stevenson Wine brings to light the hidden secrets of the soul, gives being to our hopes, bids the coward flight, drives dull care away, and teaches new means for the accomplishment of our wishes Horace. What a wonderful thing great wine is! After a brief introduction, Nacho will take you through a fun process to stimulate your senses as you start tasting the wines on offer. Depending on the time of year there will be 3 or 4 delicious wines, 2 white and 2 red of different ages and a variety of regions of Spain. You will learn the basics of how to appreciate the aromas, visual aspects and flavours of some great wines from several different regions of Spain. You can then enjoy some delicious tapas. Wine ... cheereth God and man. Judges, 9:13 Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Mankind possesses two supreme blessings. The first is Demeter or Earth who gave to man his nourishment. After that Dionysus matched her present by inventing liquid wine as his gift to man. For filled with that good gift, suffering mankind forgets its grief; there is no other medicine for misery Euripedes
Marina And Nacho
Nacho, my husband, is warm and friendly and passionate about wine and great food. From Malaga, he trained in oenology at the renowned "La Consula" Catering School from 1995-1997 with one of the most respected oenologists in Spain, Miguel Martin. After working more than 20 years as a 'Maitre d'' in restaurants with Michelin stars and in 5 star hotels, he prefers to have more relaxed and personal contact now. Expect genuine friendliness, no pretentiousness and a joy in sharing the delights of wine. I am Co-Director of The Unique Retreat and have been hosting guests from all over the world for 15 years providing them specialised attention. I also love great wine and discovering new ones with different nuances. I will share ideas about Dionysus and support Nacho by managing communication and logistics to ensure you have a superb time.
Some tasty tapas to accompany the wine. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions. Thanks!

Where you'll be
You will be in our home, a beautiful 400 year old authentic Andalusian farmhouse with the oldest vineyard in the region. Very few places like this are left so just coming here can be an experience in itself! You will be in spectacular countryside in the Montes de Malaga natural park surrounded by mountains. If you love nature and history as well as wine, you will be in for a treat! Weather-depending we may be outside on the terrace or inside.
