Bodegas La Rodetta is a family project that began in 2011 in the town of Elvillar (Álava). The most outstanding products of this winery are sweet and semi-sweet white wines.
La Rodetta is a winery with a young spirit, both for its year of foundation (in 2011) and for the age of its founders. These come from a family nucleus in which the world of wine has been very present over generations, which prompted them to study related to the sector, and later found Bodegas La Rodetta.
The winery has 86 hectares of its own vineyards located in the area of La Rioja Alta (Haro) and Rioja Alavesa (Laguardia). In them are grown the varieties with which the quality wines are made La Rodetta, being the Tempranillo grape the most present.
During the first years of operation, the winery located in the Rioja Alavesa town of Elvillar grouped its efforts in the production of sweet and semi-sweet white wines that were not very present in the wine market D.O.Ca. Rioja. With the increase of the company and its greater presence in this market, they began to incorporate also a greater production of aged and young red wines.
Thus, to this day Bodegas La Rodetta has two collections of wines, both with Rioja Designation of Origin.
On the one hand, there are La Rodetta wines, among which are: the AC sweet white wine made with Viura and Moscatel, and one of the best known of the winery; the young red wine La Carolina, with 100% Tempranillo grapes; and the red crianza Malabestia, also monovarietal Tempranillo and with an aging of 14 months in French and American oak barrels.
On the other hand, we have the wines of the Castillo La Rodetta brand, also composed of three different wines. In this case, the three wines are red and 100% Tempranillo, differentiated by their aging time in the cellar. The Ypeton is the young wine, the Castillo La Rodetta Crianza has aged from 12 to 14 months in American and French oak barrels, and the Castillo La Rodetta Reserva adds the 18 months of aging in barrel with the 18/24 of rest in the bottle.
The quality wines of Bodegas La Rodetta are not only known in the Spanish wine sector, but also have an international presence in other markets.
