Bodegas Honorio Rubio

The vineyards of Bodegas Honorio Rubio, owned by the Rubio-Villar family, consist of 15 hectares surrounding the small town of Cordovín in La Rioja Alta. They have steadily built a reputation for their stellar production of ‘El Clarete de Cordovín’, a light refreshing rosé style wine.

Their ‘Tremendus’ Rioja Clarete visually resembles a rosé but follows a slightly different method of production. Maceration is on the skins of both white and red grapes before the juice is drawn off and fermentation takes place. This process essentially creates a white wine with a pale pink colour Bone dry and fresh with subtle red fruit flavours and a pleasant creaminess from lees ageing, it is a fascinating rosé for pairing with food, acting as the ideal partner to local dishes such as salt cod a la riojana, or more exotic fare including south-East Asian cuisine.
