In 1994, Compania de Vanos Telmo Rodriguez was established by Pablo Eguzkiza and Telmo Rodriguez. Telmo Rodriguez is widely regconised as one of Spain’s most talented and prolific winemakers. From the start, the aim of the company has been to use native Spanish varieties. This philosophy originally differed from the on-going interest in the planting of foreign varieties. Another noteworthy initiative, again from the earliest days of the business, is the recovery of abandoned or forgotten vineyards. The current Telmo Rodriguez collection includes wines produced in eight different DOs.
