Our secret in Ribera del Duero
Bodega Roquesan is one of the oldest wineries you can find in the Ribera del Duero D.O. Founded in 1964 when 200 wine growers decided to join together to form a Cooperative. Why? They had very old vineyards, which were very difficult to maintain and manage individually, and in this way they were able to guarantee excellent quality wine, and most importantly hang on to the vines. Centenary vines, so difficult to find in Spain. If you walk around you will see vines that are 100 years old, 80 years old, and the most recently planted: 30 years old. All Tempranillo, a very important grape for Spain, known in this region as “Tinta del País”.
the raw material, the terroir, the vines.
