About Casa Rojo
The Casa Rojo team take a creative approach to the whole business of wine, building a sense of fun and spirit into an immersive experience with grape and terroir. The passion of these ‘wine designers’ can be experienced through a joyful journey to seven regions to meet some of the native grapes that are grown there.
The expression of a family, land, climate, and ultimately origin is strong in their wines. The historic vocation of the different Spanish winemaking regions, a legacy passed down from generation to generation, plays out in the glass. It was the great diversity of Spanish terroirs that provided the inspiration to create a range which could be assembled from the product of local expertise; to perfectly represent the spirit of the terroir from which it originates is no easy task.
Their team of winemakers, sommeliers, designers and professionals from the world of wine all share a singular obsession; to create wines to express the authentic terroir, to make wines with character and structure. The grapes are harvested and the wine made with the utmost respect for the natural qualities of the variety; this includes the use of native yeasts.
Casa Rojo, with their innovative and ground-breaking vision, shows how small is beautiful: they are not distracted by the details of the bottling facility or the logistics of large wineries, which add cost without adding value. Their focus is the viticulture, oenology and design of a wine to produce nothing but pleasure when consumed. They believe that evolution of consumer markets requires an evolution of ideas, in order to add value to their wines. Ideally these wines will sell themselves and at the same time reflect the history behind the grapes.
