In 1994, Telmo Rodríguez, after graduating in winemaking in Bordeaux and graduating from the Remelluri family winery, produced a wine from old vines in Navarre.
That wine he created next to Pablo Eguzkiza and a third winemaker was named Alma. Thus begins the project, which in its origins was called the Company of Wines of La Granja. A name that was all a declaration of intentions: it was clear that the company would make more wines and that there was a tribute to La Granja, the famous glass factory, witness of an exceptional Spanish handicraft, now almost disappeared.
Since its inception, the main argument of the Telmo Rodríguez Wine Company is the use of only native varieties of original areas. This philosophy contrasts then with the boom of the implantation of foreign varieties, practically in the whole Spanish vineyard.
