At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world. In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro’s world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place. What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario’s and Carmen’s surnames, RO-DA. The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established. The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja’s wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used. There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added Read more »

  • Roda Roda 1 Reserva 2004


    Espectacular ejemplar Riojano. De un color bastante grante profundo pero a la vez denota su evolución en botella. En nariz los aromas a cedro, ceniza, tabaco y chocolate son predominantes pero la fruta en almibar no se deja opacar resaltando después de varias narices. En boca es algo realmente espectacular, completamente integrado, estructurado ... Read More

This leading modernizer of Rioja, at once admired and loathed, has had the benefit of time on its side. Early wines that were summarily dismissed by the wine cognosc... Read More

    Lots of floral notes on the nose, sweet berries, chocolate, currant, vanilla, and caramel.Sweet on the tongue, lots of berries, semi-sweet chocolate, coffee and caramel with a bit of licorice. I am curious to try this with some spicy food as I think the firm tannins, balanced acidity and caramelize flavors will stand up well to the challenge. ... Read More
