Wine made in paradise
The estate is divided into two heights, the winery and the vineyard field, located on the Cornisa del Tajo de Ronda, surrounded by three Natural Parks. The winery is an old 16th century convent. The Descalzos Viejos farm has an area of 16 hectares. At the rear of the building, there is a beautiful terraced garden with fruit trees and a water source. The vineyard is found in the lower part of the estate, between old olive trees and holm oaks.
A common dream
The project involved the recovery of the main building, gardens, orchards, ponds, fountains and the entire environment, reintegrating and consolidating all the original architectural and artistic elements that could be recovered. Surprising was the appearance of some frescoes on the main altar, where the deposits and barrels are located, which, hidden under numerous layers of lime, chips and damp, have miraculously survived. These frescoes reflect Santa Justa and Santa Rufina, and what less than to pay homage to them by creating two wines with their name "Iusta" and "Rufina".
