La Horra

La Horra es una población burgalesa con una larga tradición en producción de vinos. Ya en el siglo XIX, según algunos escritos, se producían 100.000 cántaras (1.600.000 litros) de vino al año. Una decena de bodegas soportan todavía el peso de esta tradición. Estos viñedos, que guardan las cepas más antiguas, algunas del 1880, prefiloxéricas, de pié franco y con un patrimonio que remonta a varios siglos, a arcilloso-calcáreos muy pedregosos, a una altitud media superior a 900 mt., estos áridos viñedos sufren un clima de extremos, en el que los días calurosos y secos se alternan con frías noches.

La historia de La Horra corre pareja con la de la vecina Roa desde el siglo XII, formando parte de sus más de 30 aldeas, entre las que se relaciona Calaforram (la actual La Horra). Desde 1725, previo consentimiento del Conde de Siruela (señor de estas tierras por entonces), este pueblo ha venido escribiendo su propia historia. Es una importante población ribereña por su producción de vinos, para llegar a Roa, sede del Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen «Ribera del Duero», donde debe visitarse la Excolegiata de Santa María y el Aula Arqueológica.
