Telmo Rodríguez studied biology in Bilbao, oenology in Bordeaux and he worked in his family-owned winery of Remelluri, located in Labastida (Rioja Alavesa), which he directed for 10 years. In 1994, he started new projects in different spanish wine regions. Together with Pablo Eguzkiza, he made his first wine, Alma, made with old Grenaches from Navarra. Since that moment, the philosophy of the project was based on the recovery of vineyards and the work with native varieties. Few wine professionals like him have made the tremendous effort to revisit and rediscover historical wine regions of the Peninsula, to understand and work in all of them at once. 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). "El Club" of May is a modest declaration of intent of one winemaker that is doing a big effort to recovery forgotten varieties and regions.
