On a balcony in the neighborhood
of the station Haro,
over a century old draft ...
Where? BODEGAS RODA is located in the edge of the river Ebro, in a balcony of the Railway Station District (Barrio de la Estación) in Haro, La Rioja, over a XIX century “calado”. The vine growers used to use it to stock their harvests, that would be, subsequently, sent to Bordeaux by train to mitigate the damages caused by phylloxera.
When? RODA was founded in 1987. Four years after the foundation the construction of the winery begins, it finished in 2001.
How? The facilities where custom-made according to the necessities of the RODA wines: adapting in each phase, the number of vats to the selected vineyards in each vintage, a bioclimatic room, product of an unprecedented bet for innovation, and two aging rooms directly bored in the rock.
Did you know that…
… in RODA wines from other vintages are never used to modify or refresh the present vintage?
In order to keep the identity of the vintage in our vineyards, we don’t even buy wines from other wineries.
… RODA controls around 20 vine parcels distributed in the best ecosystems of the area, from which every year only the best ones are vinified?
… in RODA the vinification is made in French oak vats with temperature control?
In addition, the aging is 100% made in French oak barrels.
