Bodegas Ramón Roqueta
The origins of Ramón Roqueta date back to the 12th century and nowadays they are a power house in the Spanish winemaking community the family owning and running a number of vineyards and wineries where they relentlessly seek to express the history and identity of the native soils through their wines. From their portfolio we import Las Corazas and La Picossa from Castilla and Terra Alta respectively.
La Picossa, named after Pablo Picasso, is the local mountain situated between the Ebro River and the Terra Alta region (the summer home for the Spanish international artist including Picasso himself in 1909). It is 499 meters high and this mountain separates the county of Terra Alta from the region of Terres de l’Ebre.
Bodegas Crin Roja is the home of Las Corazas, a young winery in La Mancha, a region that contains the most extensive surface area of vineyards on the planet.
The vines are planted on mainly chalky based and stony ground, with little soil and the climate is marked by extreme temperatures in winter and summer as well as scarce rainfall.
