Telmo Rodríguez studied biology in Bilbao, oenology in Bordeaux and worked in Remelluri winery located in Labastida (Rioja Alavesa), which he directed for 10 years. In 1994, he started new projects in different wine regions of the Spanish geography. Together with Pablo Eguzkiza, he made his first wine, Alma, with old Grenache from Navarra. From that moment, the philosophy of the project was based on recovery of vineyards and work with native varieties. Throughout these 24 years he has a total of 355 small plots, more than 80 hectares planted with 43 varieties of native grapes in different regions of the Spanish wine map (Rioja, Rueda, Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Toro, Malaga, Galicia, Alicante and Ávila). The Club of May is a modest notes of intentions of one winemaker that is doing a big effort to recovery forgotten varieties and regions.
