Telmo Rodriguez

Rioja & Ribera del Duero

Telmo Rodriguez is one of the finest Spanish winemakers. Telmo travelled and learnt for many years, perfecting his craft and gaining international recognition before returning home to his family winery in Rioja: Remelluri had always made wines of the highest quality, but this was further enhanced with the return of the prodigal son. In addition he supervises projects throughout Spain and makes superb wines in each location. One of his most acclaimed projects is in Ribera del Duero where he makes wines at Matallana which are amongst the best in the region.

Telmo’s vision of the future of the Remelluri estate is centered around a focus on place. He is changing the focus from one of aging methods, and even varietals, to one of sites. As the estate reclaims vineyard sites, Telmo is handpicking the varietals best suited to the specific microclimate of each plot. He is also refocusing on old trellis styles, such as bush vine training. All plots are vinified separately.
