More than 60 years of tradition make Bodega San Roque de la Encina one of the first wineries in the Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. We have vineyards with an average of more than twenty-five years old, approximately 400 hectares of Tempranillo vineyards cultivated among our 250 members, grapes harvested by hand, making a first selection in the field and then in the winery. The wine is made by controlled fermentation, followed by barrel aging, resulting in delicate, natural and select wines.
In the heart of the Ribera and near Aranda de Duero is Castrillo de la Vega, the starting point of our history, here is where we have learned to live, coexist and enjoy our great passion, wine. With around 400 hectares of vineyards, the winery has undergone several modifications throughout its history, implementing new technologies without losing the essence of tradition.
Vineyards of the tinta fina variety, also known as tempranillo, planted in different soils and plots, soils with a sandy loam texture, soils with pebbles, limestone soils, all of them poor in organic matter, make up our winegrowing scenario.
We are constantly adapting to the demands of top quality winemaking. We seek at all times to balance traditional production methods with the most modern technology and marketing systems. The investment made in the latest expansion, modernizes the winery in terms of technique and winemaking within DO Ribera del Duero.
