There the guests could enjoy and compare a decade of vintages from RODA I 1997 to RODA I 2006 (DOCa Rioja), as well as the new wines from Ribera del Duero CORIMBO and CORIMBO I. The event was a success for all people, who agreed to value the unsurpassable qualities of the RODA wine, characterized by its unique style, fullness and freshness.

A short while later, on February 28th RODA arrived to New York, where a tasting was made in the new restaurant 'Manzanilla' of the chef Dani García. This was the first event organized in the recently inaugurated restaurant that was attended by 20 renowned journalist of the city. In the tasting, two vintages of different wines of the winery with 10 years of difference were compared: RODA I 2004 vs RODA I 1994, RODA I 2005 vs RODA I 1995 and RODA 2006 vs RODA II 1996. Immediately after, the olive oils AUBOCASSA and DAURO that are made by Bodegas RODA in Majorca and Empordà were tasted; and after the wine from Ribera del Duero: CORIMBO I 2009, CORIMBO I 2010 and CORIMBO 2010.
