Bodegas ordoñez, a multi-territorial project that values the indigenous. Having grown up in the heart of a Malaga family dedicated to wine distribution, Jorge Ordoñez began to know from very young the intricacies of this business, from the most basic aspects like loading trucks to being able to close the most complex contracts.
Jorge has been able to revitalize and modernize the processes of winemaking in Spain by adding value to the older vineyards or decreasing yields without losing the character of the wines from their land. He was also the first to introduce Albariño, Txakoli or Godello to the American palates.
