Roda was founded in 1987 by current owners Mario Rotllant and his wife Carmen Daurella. At this time it was a rare Boutique winery in the Haro region. The Roda I is pure Tempranillo and aged for longer periods in predominantly new oak. They also produce Cirsion in minute quantities from even older vines and aged in a 100 % new oak. Both wines are made from 50 year old vines. The barrio de la estacion neighbourhood is where one would find some of the oldest wineries in Rioja. While Roda is a relative newcomer, with a very modern vision, Victor describes their approach as modern with a classical twist. Roda is one of the first wineries in Rioja to have a research and development department studying all aspects of wine production.
