Telmo Rodriguez

Telmo Rodriguez is a passionate opponent of the internationalisation of Spanish vineyards, and is dedicated to a way forward for Spain which combines indigenous varieties with superior viticulture and winemaking. He and his wine-making and viticulturist partner, Pablo Eguzkiza, created ‘Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez’ with the aim of selecting outstanding vineyards to produce the best regionally typical varieties.

The company’s work in Rioja is based on the search for the soul of the region, returning to the villages where a few special plots express themselves in a single wine.

Vintage 2010:

2010 is without doubt the best vintage in its youth that I have handled, going back to and including 1994. The outstanding year of the modern Spanish wine industry to date! And not fluffy media puppies which show and then blow, real wines structured for long, elegant lives.
