    Rotllan Torra Winery Image
    Rotllan Torra Winery is a family company created in 1982, before the emergence of the so-called new Priorats, wines boosted by the praise of critic Robert Parker. The Rotllan family, formerly wine distributors in Penedès, moved to Priorat when it learned of the region’s amazing potential. At the time, the firm was the sixth winery in Priorat as well as the one of the first to bottle all of its production.

    The main attraction at Rotllan Torra, apart from sampling the wines, is the history and architecture of the facility, built in the middle of the 17th century by the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei in a Renaissance style with Cistercian influences. From the start it was designed as a cellar, with an enormous capacity of one million litres of wine. The technology of the construction, consisting of stone and mortar and dug in the ground, provides optimum winemaking conditions, with a constant temperature and humidity, in addition to silence and darkness.

    In the 20th century, after being sold, the cellar’s new private owners fitted it out with the latest technology of the period (electricity, glazed ceramic...). At the end of the 20th century, Rotllan Torra, in step with new trends, added stainless steel and wood to the facility, noteworthy for an interesting bottle cellar for 100,000 bottles in the old underground cellars, today perforated and interconnected.

    In addition, the cellar houses the facilities of the Torroja cooperative, which is used as a warehouse. Rotllan Torra works with the fruit grown on 86 acres of its own vineyards within the township of Torroja (the varieties Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena, between ten and one hundred years old, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot), as well as 160 additional acres of land. The winery produces around 200,000 bottles a year, 80% of which is exported. The firm also produces Milena vinegar.

    Tempranillo

    Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

    Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
