Known as Bodegas Y Vinedos Granja Ntra. Sra. De Remelluri in the past, but known to fans as simply Remelluri, this remains one of Rioja’s reference points. The Remelluri name has a large following with Spanish fans and is known for its high quality Rioja wines and profound history that dates back to the fourteenth century. The big news here was the return of Telmo Rodriguez, who left the family winery to start his own projects throughout Spain, but returned in February 2010. Many changes have been made, and more will come. For a start, Telmo started a solera with Viura, blending different vintages, in a kind of homage to old white Riojas. Further improvements such as redefining the brand’s product line by clearly separating the wines produced with the estate grapes and those produced with grapes purchased from external suppliers; as well as implementing biodynamic practices in the vineyards.
