Do you love Mediterranean food?

Is food and wine an important part of your holiday experience?

You are welcome to join our Mediterranean cooking class at Cortijo el Medico. The Mediterraenean diet is not only known as the world´s most healthy diet, but also for its delicious, homemade food.

We´ll dive into the principals of Mediterraean cooking, cook together and enjoy the meal together. Accompagnied by a glass or two of wine from our bodega, of course.

There will also be a guided tour of our vineyards and bodega, and you´ll get the chance to fill and cork your own bottle of wine (that you can bring with you home).
