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

    Snoothrank:

    2004 Roda I Reserva (14.5%) - attractive and intricate nose with 'cheesy' meaty notes; this is serious stuff with powerful solid mouth-feel vs superb depth and class, savoury vs liquorice finish; the alcohol is just a bit out of kilter but a great wine (I'd have graded it 95 otherwise). 92-94Or better balanced I think, their "basic" wine:2004 Ro...

    Wine review by koswerks

The alta expresión movement began as many producers, both new and old, looked at the world wine market a... Read More

  • Roda 1 Rioja Reserva 2003

    Snoothrank:

    A city girl with country roots: Delicate almost-prune and wildflowers on the nose, petal soft in the mouth with fresh touches of wet weeds, eucalyptus, and distant smoke beneath the pleasing red fruit. Balanced, gentle & lovely. Read More

    Wine review by Carly Wray


  • Roda Roda 1 Reserva 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly meaty and floral nose, always an interesting combination. A smooth wine, with good but balanced acidity, integrated oak that shows more on the finish, a mix of red and black fruit, predominantly black cherry, and a long finish of chocolate. Read More
