Re: Trip to Spain.....Need help!

I will be with a group of 6 friends doing an R&R in Porcuna (between Cordoba to the west and Jaen to the southeast) later this spring. Any suggestions for restaurants or wineries in the area would be greatly appreciated. I am curious how you decided on a little town in the middle of Olive Oil land?...
