Carmelo Rodero is the fourth generation of a family of growers from Pedrosa de Duero in Burgos (Ribera del Duero). His great-grandparents used to produce wine in the old and traditional winery until his grandparents founded the Cooperative of Pedrosa de Duero. Sticking to the tradition of his family, Carmelo Rodero started growing his family vineyards and after a few years he decided to stand on his own two feet growing his first 50 hectares (123.5 acres) and selling the grapes to the mythical winery Vega Sicilia during 14 years.
Being aware that a great wine is based on the quality of the grapes, Carmelo decided to bet on his future and founded Bodegas Rodero in 1990. He is particularly proud that since the first vintage in 1991, all his wines have been awarded in the most important fairs and tastings (not only in Spain but also worldwide), which acknowledges their quality.
Supported by his wife, Elena, Carmelo realizes that he was right showing enterprise, as now his daughters, Beatriz and María, very much involved in the winery, also joined him.
Beatriz, his eldest daughter, studied Agricultural Engineering in Spain (specialization in Viticulture) and Oenology at the University of Bordeaux (in France). She is now managing the technical department. There is no doubt she inherited the passion for the vines and the wine from her father.
