Bodegas Remelluri's vineyards are located along the slopes of the Sierra de Tolono mountains in the valleys of Valderemelluri, La Granja and Villaescusa. The Remelluri vineyards here are at the highest elevation in the region, south-facing, and protected from the prevailing winds and frost. It is the unique microclimate of this area that gives the wines of Remelluri their personality.
Introducing Bodegas Remelluri
The Remelluri Farm has origins that date back to the 10th Century, and documented accounts of winemaking from 1596. (Labastida Town Hall has records of pitchers of wine made by the Nuestra Senora de Remelluri Farm for every year up to the last century.)
Poor, stony soil with layers of clay help to retain freshness, while the Atlantic influence provides abundant rainfall and lower temperatures than there are in the rest of the region. The alternation of cool nights and hot days offers ideal conditions for proper phenolic ripening of Tempranillo. Organic farming principles have always been utilized to ensure that the wine remains true to this unique terruno. Remelluri also uses an integrated system of agriculture with great respect for the environment. The winery is currently in the process of gaining organic certification.
After years of perfecting his craft and gaining international recognition for his winemaking abilities, Telmo Rodriguez has returned to his family's winery. Telmo seeks to remain true to his family estate's vaunted history while guiding it into a bright tomorrow.
