Jamon Factory In Rute Andalucia Only 20 Minutes From Casa Pino Solo

This month in Andalucia has been the traditional time for the 'La Matanza' which is the killing of the pig ready for the New Year and 3 Kings and stocking up for the rest of the following year.
We decided to visit the jamon factory and museum in Rute to go and taste some of the new produce a few days ago and the chorizo's were just beautiful and also the jamon too.
There are several tasting places at the top of town and the main Jamon shop has many different produces to buy after you have tasted and worked out the best flavours for you.
This is really worth a visit and if you visit this in December you can also visit all the other factories in this village and make a half a days tour of it.There is also an anis factory too that i did not manage to get to this time!!
We currently have fantastic special offers on for November and December 2012 so you can really take advantage of this and if you are lucky and something you are interested in you may even get to see a 'La Matanza' locally.
Do contact me for further price details and get your Winter sunshine holiday booked in,the weather is just amazing as we speak!!!
Have a good New Year all my friends and family love Lisa xx
