A collaboration among the young Spanish winemakers of Bodegas San Alejandro and French and American wine specialists, Las Rocas is a testament to passionate winemaking with a modern view. Our wines speak to the distinctive varietal character of Garnacha - even our Red Blend highlights this Spanish grape. We use only a light oak influence to let the terroir of Calatayud's rocky sloping vineyards take center stage.
We harvested our first vintage of Las Rocas from 100% Garnacha grapes in 2001. Released in the U.S. in 2003, the inaugural vintage of Las Rocas Garnacha garnered immediate critical and popular acclaim. Today, we offer two bottlings: Las Rocas Garnacha and Las Rocas Viñas Viejas (Old Vines) Garnacha, from vines between 50 and 100 years old. The inaugural vintage of our Spanish Red Blend is a tantalizing mix of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Syrah.
