Bodega San Roque de la Encina, with more than 60 years of tradition, is one of the leading Ribera del Duero Appellation wineries. 400 hectares of vineyards planted more than 25 year ago with Tempranillo vines tended by 250 partners. All our grapes are hand-picked from selected vines, then fermented at a controlled temperature and aged in American and French oak barrels to produce delicate, natural, select wines.
Castrillo de la Vega, the starting point for our story, lies in the heart of the Ribera district, near Aranda de Duero. This is where we have learned to live, share our experience and enjoy our great passion, wine. Our winery, with 400 hectares of vineyards, has maintained its bond with Castrillo de la Vega. It has undergone several changes in the course of its history to increase the production capacity and the number of barrels. We have managed to adapt to new times and implement new technologies without losing the essence of our tradition.
The backdrop for our winemaking is a vineyard landscape planted with the Tinta Fina varietal, also known as Tempranillo, on a number of blocks with silty-loam, pebbly and limestone soils, all of them poor in organic matter.
We are constantly adapting to the demand for top quality wine production. We seek a balance between traditional processing methods and technology and modern sales techniques. The recently investment made, modernizes our technical and winemaking facilities as part of the Ribera del Duero appelation.
