History of Las Rocas
A historic region. A special grape. A modern wine. This is the new Spain. This is Las Rocas.
Founded in 1962 as a growers’ co-operative, Bodegas San Alejandro (BSA) is located in the tiny town of Miedes, about 55 miles north of Madrid in the province of Zaragoza. Today, over 350 local growers farm nearly 3,000 acres of vineyard in the Calatayud winegrowing region to supply the grapes we use for Las Rocas.
