PRODUCER: Since its origin, the main purpose of Compañia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez is the use only of native varieties from original areas. This philosophy contrasts with the boom of the implantation of foreign varieties, practically throughout the Spanish vineyard. Another of the initiatives to which the project wants to pay special attention, also from its origins, is the recovery of forgotten vineyards.
