Bodegas Aura


There are few wineries in the world where grapes are harvested when the sun sets. This is the case of Aura, located in the Rueda Region (Valladolid). The winery is named after the veil of light that surrounds the grape clusters in the evening.


It is night harvesting that gives its wines an unusual elegance and wideness, and a fresh, fruity flavour, maintaining the scent of youth intact

Teresa Rodríguez, Aura’s winemaker, was born in Madrid on 16 October. She is graduated as a Technical Specialist in Viticulture and Oenology from the Madrid Vine and Wine School and Museum, and holds a Master’s degree in Viticulture, Oenology and Wine Marketing from The International Social Science Council.


Vineyard


The Aura vineyards are planted with two grape varieties: the native Verdejo, occupying the largest part, and Sauvignon Blanc, whose floral nuances provide an ideal counterpoint to the wine. To complete the combination of factors that make these wines so special, at Aura we complement the old, 25-year-old vines, which give the wine structure and consistence in the mouth, with younger vines that make a more aromatic and fruity contribution.


Located at an altitude of 730 meters above sea level, on the Castilian plateau, the vineyards are exposed to long, cold winters and hot summers with drastic temperature differences between day and night, which help to achieve great balance in the grapes’ biological development.


The vineyards are divided into plots that are classified to extract the true personality of the terroir and and express it in our wines.
