Bodegas Góngora was founded in 1682 in the old Hacienda de San Rafael, which was later renamed Hacienda de "Pata de Hierro". Today, it is the seventh generation of the Góngora family that is totally dedicated to the production of fine, generous wines and brandies, with the knowledge and experience acquired over 300 years.
Bodegas Góngora is located in Villanueva del Ariscal, Seville, in the Aljarafe region. This lies between the Guadalquivir and Guadiamar rivers, at an altitude of 160 metres above sea level. It is located 42 km from the coast, whose dominant winds, called "tides", give it its characteristic microclimate.
Reception and welcome of the group; historical, technical and cultural talk about the Aljarafe with all its connotations, especially the discovery of America.

During the tour, visitors will be shown the monumental 16th-century Viga de Husillo y Quintal (Spindle and Hundredweight Beam) press, which has been declared, along with the winery, an Asset of Cultural Interest with the category of monument by the Ministry of Culture of the Junta de Andalucía. The tour ends with a tasting of the most representative wines of the winery accompanied by an aperitif.
