Telmo Rodriguez is widely recognized as one of Spain’s most talented and prolific winemakers. A proud student and proponent of Spain’s viticultural history, he is leading a revival that focuses on planting indigenous varietals and rediscovering forgotten regions of superior terroir. Telmo studied viticulture and oenology at the University of Bordeaux and was the winemaker at Remelluri, his family winery in Rioja, before setting off on his own in 1990. He spends most of his time and efforts in the vineyards he trellises his vines using the traditional bush method and only uses massale selections to replant. Telmo understands that most people will be introduced to him through his baseline cuvees, therefore he puts as much attention into his everyday wines as he does his rare and limited bottlings.
Technical notes
In 2004 Telmo decided to start a new project in Valdeorras a little known area of Galicia. The purpose was to create a very serious white wine from the region’s native Godello grape. The vineyard he eventually purchased was a wild, old parcel planted on old Roman terraces that abuts the Sil River. The wine is fermented in stainless steel with native and cultured yeast.
