AN UNRELENTING PURSUIT OF MODERNITY
In the late 1980s a new generation of winemakers arrived in Rioja to renew the vine and wine industry. Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella started their winery with the intention of bringing innovation into winemaking. This is where a fascinating, ambitious and unprecedented adventure began: Bodegas Roda.
An unrelenting pursuit of modernity with a deep respect for the past would be a cliché if the visionary owners of Bodegas Roda didn’t back up the credo with such extraordinary commitment. From industry leading investments in viticultural R&D to an inspiring project to map Rioja’s massively diverse, and shrinking, Tempranillo genome, Roda truly leads the way. For a Spanish winery that is just decades old to leap to Icon status can only be due to a passion lead by the heart and soul.
