THE WINEMAKER: BODEGAS AROA
There have been vineyards in this region since Roman times. Many centuries passed, and the vines were kept until the 1970s and 80s, when many were removed in order to give way to cereal fields. AROA arrived in 1998 and began to reactivate the vineyards. “where the grape is pressed, that this marvellous process of the transformation of the grape into “divine liquid: wine” took place. AROA defend the concept of “terroir”, the individuality of the wines from a specific area, with their own cultural identity, by using a small-scale artsian approach, making full use of current technology, both in the vineyard and the wine cellar.
AROA, a Basque word, in the context of agriculture, means: “The optimum, ideal moment to work the land”
