Agustín Santolaya, general manager of Bodegas RODA received in San Sebastián Gastronomika by Josep Roca, sommelier of "El Celler de Can Roca", a commemorative plaque in recognition of 25 years of wine-growing excellence of the winery.

Previously Josep Roca was also awarded with "Gueridón de Oro" for his dedication to the world of dining service and wine, decision taken unanimously by the Technical Committee of the Congress.

In addition, Agustín Santolaya has directed in the afternoon in San Sebastián Gastronomika a tasting of the excellent vintages that has been marketed in the history of RODA I (DOCa Rioja): 1994, 1995, 2001, 2004 and 2005. Santolaya explained how each climate vintage was reflected in each wine, and the 100 fortunate participants to the tasting voted at the end what was their favourite vintage, the winner was the 2001 (in second placed the 1994, 2004 and 2005 vintages ended in a tie). At that point, the participants also tasted the oil AUBOCASSA, which is produced by the winery in an estate in Manacor (Majorca), in this way to go from old wines to more new. Following it was tasted CORIMBO I 2009 (DO Ribera del Duero), a wine that fascinated and with a different style in Ribera del Duero, based on elegance. Finally, a depth analysis was carried out from the climate point of view of CIRSION 2009 and CIRSION 2010 wines: the 2009 was a warm vintage and gave as a result more full-bodied and structured wines, and the 2010 was a fresh vintage and with a certain Atlantic influence, which resulted more fine and elegant wines and less powerful. Then, it was debated the interesting comparison between two very different vintages and both excellent. This tasting is part of the tour of international vertical tasting that RODA is organizing in order to commemorate its 25 years.
