Telmo Rodriguez is Spain’s driving winemaker, a genius who makes wine from Rioja and Toro in the north all the way down to Malaga on the Mediterranean coast, revitalizing and sometimes reinventing traditional regions along the way. To get him down with a range of his wines, tasting and talking through each, is like chatting with a (very charming) encyclopedia. Check out this awesome video from FlippinWineFood in Chicago, where she caught up with Telmo at a tasting.
A nice piece on Telmo Rodriguez by his Canadian importer, Lifford Wine Agency, which gives nice insight into what drives Telmo to find special little vineyards all over Spain.
