Bodegas Naia is located about an hour north of Madrid in the province of Castilla y Lyon and within the Rueda D.O. region. The estate has three owners: Javier Alen, who owns Vina Mein winery in the Ribeiro D.O. region; Victor Rodriguez, formerly director of the highly acclaimed food and wine magazine Vino y Gastronomia, and Eulogio Calleja, a highly regarded winemaker in Rueda.
Bodegas Naia’s winery, Viña Sila, is situated along the southern bank of the Duero River in Rueda. The winery covers 40 hectares (about 96 acres) in the village of La Seca, which is referred to as Rueda’s "Grand Cru" village by local growers. The climate here is described as “extreme continental”, very dry with a low average annual rainfall. There are long, cold winters with frequent frost and short, hot summers.
Bodegas Naia makes tank-fermented, bright, zesty, crisp whites like Verdejo that possess ripe stone fruit notes, honeysuckle aromas and balanced acidity.
