Bodegas Roda launches a new adventure. After a path of more than twenty years, which has converted in one of the most prestigious cellar of the D.O. Rioja, Bodegas Roda proposes to diversify the elaboration of wines in a new D.O, Ribera de Duero, with Bodehas La Horra.
The team of Bodegas La Horra knows Tempranillo well, but to get more varietal wines decided to investigate the Spanish soils to find the one that would best adapt to this grape. They found that the best area for cultivation is Ribera del Duero, more particularly in the area of La Horra, in Burgos.
Thus, they decided to locate there their new wine project, which would take its name from said locality, whose tradition linked to wine goes back to the pre-Roman times.
