MONTILLA: VISIT THE CITY, ITS WINE CELLARS AND WINE TASTING

An accessible study of wine

Travelling in our vehicle and accompanied by a specialist from the University of Córdoba, we will go to Montilla, a town in the area of Campiña Sur. Historically remebered as the birthplace of Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, the Great Captain was born here in 1453 in the castle whose ruins dominate the city. We will visit the house of Garcilaso de la Vega, the acclaimed Inca-Spanish author, who lived here between 1561 and 1591 and wrote some of his works here. He is known as the ‘Prince of Writers of the New World’. The city is renowned for the quality of its Pedro Ximénez grape, used in the making of Montilla wines, and, along with the nearby town of Moriles, forms part of the winemaking region of Montilla-Moriles. We will visit one of the most famous wine cellars where an expert will explain the entire process and we will finish the tour by tasting several types of the local specialities
