Bodegas las Orcas is a small, family-owned and operated winery in the Rioja Alavesa region of Spain. The winery was officially founded in 1900 in the town of Laguardia and made wine in their traditional cellar underneath the medieval town until the construction of the new bodega just outside the town wall in 1999.

Raimundo and his wife Cristina run the winery today and make classic style Rioja wines using only fruit from their own family vineyards. The vineyards are tended naturally without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides and the wines are fermented using native yeasts and absolutely minimal filtration.
