Winemaker Notes

Naia displays aromas of lime, must and kiwi, together with the classic plant-like qualities of Verdejo. It's beautifully fresh, with a long and dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Gentle but expressive, this white offers peach, pear, clementine and light herbal flavors that mingle nicely in a light but racy texture. Shows bright, clean acidity and a fresh, lingering finish.

Bodegas Naia, Rueda, Spain
Image of winery
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.

Rueda is located along the banks of the Duero River in Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive north of Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back to the 12th century, it was in the 1980s that the region was granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 70 wineries call Rueda home. This national favorite is the top-selling white wine in Spain.

Notable facts Rueda’s main grape variety, Verdejo, gets it distinct complexity from stressful growing conditions and mineral-rich soil. Think of Verdejo as a fuller-bodied and more aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. A lush and smooth character with perfectly balanced acidity means Rueda wines pair well with seafood, fresh salads and spicy food, but are also great on their own.

Light-bodied but captivating with flavors of citrus blossom, melon, white peach and fennel, Verdejo is native to Rueda, Spain, and is growing in popularity. If you’re used to drinking Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio, this is the wine for you! Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it is most likely a sibling of Godello, a variety native to northwest Spain. Enjoy this little charmer with a variety of dishes like fish tacos, Thai food, papaya salad or even lemon-spritzed asparagus and steamed artichokes.
