View Winery Website

Roque Colas was started in 2010 by Carmelo Colas and his two sons Cesar and Mario. Cesar is the winemaker and has been making wine in northern Spain for a number of years before starting this project with his family.

The wine is produced from estate-grown vineyards which are organically farmed and have been certified organic since 2002. Yields are tiny, only; 2,000-3,500 kg/ha (from less than 1 ton/acre to about 1.5 tons/acre). The vineyards are mostly 85 year old vine Garnacha, which the family has been growing for 5 generations. They also grow Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon (17 year old vines) at higher elevation, where there are day/night temperature shifts of up to 20 C.
