MUSIC AND WINE

Bodegas Bentomiz, just above Sayalonga off the main road towards Cómpeta, is one of the leading producers of fine wines in Málaga. Their Ariyanas range includes red, white and rosé, sweet and dry, and has had national and international success, winning plaudits and prizes in the competitive world market. We reported last year how, with the completion of their beautiful light and airy modern building they were expanding their “eno-tourism” offer to include wine-centred lunches, alongside the winery tours and wine tastings. The reaction has been so positive that TripAdvisor has awarded them a “Certificate of Excellence” for 54 five-star reviews from Spanish, British, Dutch, Belgian, Swedish, Irish, Danish and Norwegian visitors! This is mainly due to the quality of the food and wine itself but the beautiful location is also part of the attraction: visitors and residents alike respond to the spectacular views.
