We booked a last-minute tour at Bodegas Rodas during our stay in Bilbao. Our tour guide Paula was knowledgeable, informative, and ultra-friendly. We were lucky enough to arrive during the harvest period, which meant that we could get a glimpse of the grapes arriving at the bodega itself, the sorting of the grapes, and the positioning of the wine barrels.

The wine tasting was informal, with sufficient time and quantities given to truly experience the character of the four different wines in the tasting. Needless to say, Roda wine is of the highest quality.

Our experience was at Bodegas Roda was in every respect very positive.

Unlike most US wineries, the bodegas of Spain are a bit more formal. You need reservations to visit most of them and you have to participate in a tour of the facility before having the opportunity to taste. However; there are a hand full of bodegas that have tasting rooms. Bodegas Roda is one of them. While we did not take the tour here, we tasted the wines and enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. The wine was excellent.. In my opinion, one of the best Bodegas in Haro.. Being able to just taste at some bodegas will allow the opportunity to visit several bodegas in a day. The town of Haro has a hand full of bodegas that offer both tours and tasting rooms. For a great full day of wine tasting, we recommend, hitting two or three of the tasting rooms in the morning, stop for lunch (some of the bodegas offer food) and then schedule a wine tour at a bodega that does not have a tasting room in the afternoon. This will make for a full fun day of tasting some great Spanish wines.. Our recommendation.. Start at Bodegas Muga, move to Bodegas La Rioja Alta, Bodegas Gomez Cruzado, and then Bodegas Roda (they offer snacks if you want to buy a bottle here and a cheese and meat plate) and then book a tour at Bodegas CVNE or Bodegas Lopez de Heredia.. I believe Heredia also offers just a tasting room .. We like the tour at Heredia because the price including tasting, some light snacks and a bottle of wine (each person) to take with you . The Bodegas mentioned are all within walking distance of each other.. Plan to have some tea or coffee at the end of the day before driving back to your hotel… You can use a guide if you want someone to drive you.. but to be honest, in the town of Haro you don’t need a guide, so if you can just get a driver, you will save money

You can visit Roda for a standard tasting. But why not indulge yourself and make an advance reservation? Take the expensive option with lunch (€80 p.p.).
What you get is a private tour. Seeing the wine making process, the barrels, the caves and so on. At the end is the BIG surprise, lunch is served when the weather allows, at the end of the cave next to the river. A beautiful tasting inclusive Roda 1. One of the best lunches and tours I've enjoyed.

Disappointing visit vs the last time we were here about 5 years ago. Can only taste the older wines if you buy full glasses. Which we did but then had to leave 5 full glasses of wine since you cant drink 5 glasses then drive... We did not mind paying the money as much as the wastefulness of it. Last time we had the ability to pay for small tastes of old wines . Most importantly wines also young and disappointing vs some of the other bodegas and few older vintages of our preferred roda available. No tasting notes or description in any language. Service also beyond slow. 20 mins to pour 5 glasses of wine despite us being the only guests and 2 staff!! That said, not a disaster. Just disappointed for one of our formerly favorite riojas. Olive oil was the best thing!

A very small yet beautiful looking wine tasting experience.
The wines to mention worthy of tasting are SELA , RODA 1 .

There is a nice little cave looking area where they store the wines and have a place to stand and enjoy the wine .

Whilst visiting Haro this Bodega stood out by its virtue of being different. To be able to sample the wines in the original cellar is a different and chilly experience, Not only can I recommend the wies but also the experience

Haro is a gem with amazing wineries and this is one of them. . .it makes a more modern and creative wines and is worth a visit; more of a California winery experience as modern, innovative, and methodical (felt sterile though). . ..but then again the highlight of La Rioja is going to this old wineries steeped in tradition.. . which this one isnt. So you can decide if you want to come here or not. We came here after visit to Heredia Vina Tondonia and these two could not be further apart.... but was really cool to have the juxtaposition of this modern winery and Bodegas Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia next door which is an amazing experience .. ..

Last spring we went to La Rioja to do some wine tasting. We've been in Napa Valley three times and here in La Rioja it's a bit different. You usually not just walz in and taste some wine. Most wineries only do tastings/tours by booking and appointments. Many are closed on sundays. So, since we hit exactly a sunday, we had to look and ask around who might offer some tastings.

Luckily we found out that Roda - a winery unknown to us at that time - offers tastings without appointments on sundays. It's located just outside of the lovely town of Haro.

We came in around 11am and were the only ones. We were welcomed very warm by a lovely lady. She explained a lot about the winery and even let us in the cellar, which was great. They do not have a lot of wines, actuallly only three. But they are all very good. Especially the Roda I. impressed us very much. I would rate it much higher than Muga, Baigorri and Marques Riscal. A great wine, full body...balanced tannins. Highly recommended.
Together with the wine we got served a full plate of crackers topped with Roda's own olive oil ... and some sea salt .... for free. That's when we found out that this winery doesn't only produce great wine, but also brilliant olive oil ... They have two different oils, but we really enjoyed the "Dauro".

We very much enjoyed our visit here. Staff was great, took time to explain everything. No rush, no push ... a great experience. Wonderful wine and great olive oil. We enjoy wine from all over the world ... and Roda will be a new addition to our favorites!

Out of 4 Rioja vineyard tours, a tapas crawl in Logrono, and tastings of 20+ wines in the process, I would say Bodegas Roda has the best full-bodied, elegant & silky wines of all. This is evident even in their entry-level wine - Sela, before you move on to Roda, Roda 1, and the best - Cirsion. The latest version of Cirsion is still so young, but its delicious aromas and wonderful complexity would make you want to bring a bottle home. Our host was very patient and knowledgeable throughout the guided tour and the wine tasting lunch was certainly value for money with its wonderful spread. I would come back again. Highly recommended for wine aficionados 👍🏻
