The "Compañia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez" based in Logroño in the Spanish area Rioja was founded in 1994. Born in Basque, Telmo Rodríguez spent his childhood at his father's Rioja winery in Remelluri, studied biology in Bilbao, received an oenology diploma in Bordeaux and learned, among other things, from the legendary Bruno Prats on the Château Cos d'Estournel the high school of winemaking in practice. Then he had the vision of making the best possible wines in different regions of Spain at the same time. In 1994, together with his colleague Pablo Eguzkiza, he started what is perhaps the most ambitious project in recent Spanish wine history.

Telmo Rodríguez is often referred to as a "driving winemaker" because he is constantly on the road to produce his wines on site in various Spanish regions with his team of a dozen oenologists trained in Bordeaux in collaboration with local producers. An attempt is made to emphasize the regionally typical vines and characteristics of the individual wines. Telmo Rodriguez was one of the first winemakers in Spain to deal intensively with the subject terroir employed.

The grapes come from the best plots of mostly very old vines and are carefully expanded into so-called "vinos con alma" (wines with soul) in modern cellar facilities. In 2002, the magazine "Revue du Vin de France" elected him "Bordeaux en Espagne" and with spectacular reviews of the new wine superstar. So far, wines have been in the DO areas Alicante. Cigales. Malaga. Navarra. Ribera del Duero. Rioja. Rueda and Toro produced.
