Bodegas Aroa

Aroa Mutiko (70% Tempranillo, 30% Merlot) Aroa Jauna Crianza (40% Cab/Sauv, 30% Tempranillo, 26% Merlot, 4% Garnacha) A short distance from Zurukoain, where the AROA vineyards are located, in the 1st Century the Romans kept wine in a wine cellar known as “cella vinaria”, located in Arellano, storing the wine in large earthen jars known as “dolias”. It seems that this wine cellar kept around 90 dolias with a capacity of 800 litres each. There were “lacus”, namely press-rooms where the grapes were squashed and the must fermented, and another area known as “fumarium”, which, it seems, was warmed in order to accelerate the fermentation process if necessary. There were rituals involving the wine, known as “vinarias”, and on the 23rd April the “vinaria priora” celebration was held to taste the new wine. The “vinaria rustica”, celebrated on the 19th of August, was used to ask the Gods for protection.

Bodegas Castillo de Sajazarra

Castillo de Sajazarra (100% Tempranillo) Sazajarra is located around 10 kilometres to the west of Haro, in the most northern part of La Rioja Alta. At the end of the 1960s, the Líbano family bought the castle in order to rebuild it and make its home there. In its dungeons there were several very ancient parts related to wine, such as wooden tanks and casks, presses etc. As only they could have done, they started making their own wine inside the castle, first for their own consumption and later as a company, continuing the castle’s centuries-old tradition of winemaking. The new winery was created in 1973 in the gardens of the castle and in a singularly beautiful setting. The castle, gardens, winery and vineyards form one unit, making what reporters call a “true chateau”, completed by the wall and the Roman bridge. The philosophy of Bodegas Castillo de Sajazarra is.
