What a flurry of accolades for Telmo Rodriguez recently!  Now, on top of all the Telmo Rodriguez press we’ve been receiving, the Wine Spectator’s latest issue highlights Telmo Rodriguez throughout their special feature on Rioja.

If you click on the image below you can see a reprint of relevant portions of the “Revolution in Rioja” issue .  Telmo is featured in the opening article of the Rioja section called, “Searching for the Real Rioja”.  There is a full-page photo of him and he is profiled in a section called, “Seeking a Third Way”.  Telmo’s “Third Way” is a new direction that differs from previous trend of long oak-aging in the 19th and 20th century Rioja, as well as the big fruit, alcohol and extraction trend of the last 15 years.  It’s “back to the future”, as he seeks to make wines as he imagines they were made in the 18th century and earlier.

Telmo is also profiled in the article “Six Producers who are Leading the Way”.  He is one of these six producers, and his section is entitled: “Telmo Rodriguez: Prodigal Son”.  The piece discusses Telmo’s work all over Spain searching for forgotten vineyards, his return to Rioja in 1998, and the 2009 opening of his bodega in Lanciego.
