In late 1980’s, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella arrived in La Rioja to start a bodega with a new word in winemaking. The construction of the new winery was completed in 2001.
Bodegas Roda is located in the Railway Station District (Barrio de la Estación) in Haro, right over a 19th century “calado”, an impressive underground cellar.
At Roda, winemakers follow Bordeaux style, meaning that only grapes from the estate’s own parcels are used to make wine. Vinification is done in temperature-controlled French oak vats and aging is completed in French oak barrels.
Come to visit from Monday to Saturday: at 10 am and at 12 pm (2 hours duration).
Languages: English, Spanish or French. By appointment.
Bodegas Roda offer guided tours, extended tastings, comparison of Rioja wines with Ribera del Duero wines, tasting of virgin olive oil, and even lunch with wine and local specialties at the terrace overlooking the Ebro river.
You can just taste wines by the glass at the wine bar too.
How about a carriage ride through the vineyards and a tasting with a view of vineyards?
