Bodegas Naia is located in the La Seca, a region considered the Grand Cru in Rueda. The bodega was founded in 2002, with the aim of making great white wines. Since then, the unique base has been home to very old native Verdejo, some even from the pre-philloxeric period. The vineyard is 21.4 hectares and contains vines that are more than a century old. The treasure of the Bodegas Naia lies in the vineyards, because in the beginning the winery could buy old plots of up to 130 years. The most important grape variety is of course the verdejo, but they also grow a small part of sauvignon blanc. They hired Cristina Bosch as an oenologist. She was apprenticed to the master of verdejo, Eulogio Calleja. It is now a fact that we have succeeded in making the grand cru among the Verdejos and this is also confirmed by the many high ratings that the wines receive
The bodega's assortment now includes four wines: the château wine Naia, the two young wines S-Naia and K-Naia and the showpiece Náiades. The latter is one of the best Spanish white wines. At Grandcruwijnen.nl we carry the chateau wine (the Naia Naia) that has received rave reviews in the Rueda tasting of the Volkskrant (July 2015) and of course the great Naiades which is made from plots of 100+ years old.
