Bodega F. Schatz

First organic, biodynamic, natural winery of Ronda-Malaga, since 1982, 6 different wines without added sulfites produced from 9 different grapes

About the winery
We produce on our own 3 ha "Finca Sanguijuela" at 700m sea level in Ronda from 9 different grape varieties, 6 different organic, biodynamic, natural wines without added sulfites. The green seed of autocton grasses and legumes is preserved for years. The canopy is "double Guyot" in spalier frames with a planting density of 5,000 vines per Ha. For plant protection we only use sulfur and biodynamic preparations (500-508). The harvest is 100% by hand. In the cellar exclusively we use mechanical processes for the wine production, desteming/crushing, then after approx. 1 week fermentation in open vats, with pushing down by hand the cap of skins several times a day, after the month pressing, malo-lactic fermentation in stainless steel, the ageing of 6-12 months in new and used French, Slovenian and American oak barrels on the fine lees with “sur lie” with "batonnage". We are the first organic winery in wine-growing region in "Sierras de Malaga"

History & Geography
At only 18 years of age there were two things Friedrich Schatz had already clear in his mind: first, that he wanted to continue the family winemaking tradition, and secondly that he wanted to do this in a region with a better climate. 1982 arrived and he started his journey in order to find the ideal place. He travelled through various countries and areas and finally chose Spain, more specifically Ronda, which is geographically located by the Mediterranean but is strongly influenced by the Atlantic. Situated in the heart of Andalucia, the Serrania de Ronda, is an area where the Iberians and later the Romans already cultivated their vineyards, more exactly in the old town of Acinipo (Ronda la Vieja – Land of Wine).
