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.
