In 1994 the Telmo Rodríguez and Pablo Eguzkiza's project was born. They make their first wine, Alma, with old vineyards of Grenache from the town of Sada, in a mysterious Navarre. They were difficult times for this variety. It was wanted to vindicate it when the tendency those years in Spain was to work with Cabernet and Merlot. In 1995 they will discover the Arribes del Duero area. There they find a variety of very rare and unknown grape, Juan García. They work in medieval vineyards under very difficult conditions. In 1996 they made a simple and good target in Basa de Rueda. They need to sell and also explain that Spain was a country of white wine. They land in the mountains of La Axarquía in Málaga and make two barrels of their historic Moscatel. In 1997 their commitment to the Garnacha variety made them kick other areas of Aragon, starting in Moncayo, and up to the slopes of the Pyrenees. They make different wines. There they also meet the Lalanne sisters. They make them discover old varieties of the Somontano like the Moristel. They make some interesting wine but later they have to leave. Perseveran in Malaga, it is difficult but it attracts them. They make the first "Old Mountain", 300 bottles. In 1998 they returned to Rioja. They had decided to make a village wine. They choose Lanziego because they liked its landscape and its contrast of climates. Here they stay forever. They make their first wine in Ribera del Duero and begin to explore their villages. They like its austerity and its wasteland. The skin of the Tinto Fino is thick and rich. They make the first Dehesa Gago in Toro. They discover an ancient viticulture and decide to give prominence to the families of grape growers who fought for their vineyard. They discover the Tempranillo without grafting. With Gago they begin their long-lasting adventure with graphic designer Fernando Gutiérrez working on the aesthetics of the bottles, revising the tradition and creating a strong image of the different areas of Spain. In 1999 they bought a first vineyard in the town of Cebreros, in the Sierra de Gredos, a forgotten place, difficult to work with, but there they had survived precious Garnacho vines over 1,000 meters high. The blackboard beta of Arrebatacapas, the only one of all Gredos, gave them hope to make a great wine. They are made with an old winery in the neighborhood of the wineries of Ollauri, La Rioja, where Hemingway went after the San Fermines. They wanted to learn how wines were made in the 18th century. This place that has taught them so much, also kept in its walls yeasts of other centuries that today continue to ferment their grapes. In 2002 they returned to Santa Cruz in Ourense, to the authentic slopes of the Bibei, they had tried before without success. This time they wanted to stay and bought the historic vineyard of A Falcoeira. For the elders of the town it was the best in the whole area. It was abandoned many years ago. They wanted to replant it. They did it as before and nobody understood it. After ten years the first wine of A Falcoeira A Capilla, a great wine, has been bottled. In 2005, the old cellar of La Piñonera in Cebreros was restored and the Garnachas of Pegaso's old vineyards fermented again. In 2007 they built their first winery, they were buried in the landscape of Lanziego. Diego Garteiz and Paul Basañez, the architects, used earth, iron and their old oak staves. Here they work surrounded by vineyards and trees. In 2010, after 8 years in the area of As Caborcas, they began to understand this place. They decided to "bottling" an old vineyard, a term of the town called As Caborcas, a unique vineyard, full of different varieties, different ages of vines, different heights and orientations. They noticed the great differences in plots that are barely a few meters away from each other. They wanted to explain it and Falcoeira was also born and, later, O Diviso. In 2011 they bottled the first harvest of "Las Beatas", after 20 years of work. This talented vineyard helps them to understand the taste of forgotten Rioja. They have returned to work and to work the most difficult vineyards but it is worth it. They bought a vineyard from a winegrower from Labastida, "El Chifla". 4 hectares of small plots surrounded by fig, almond and peach trees. This vineyard saw this vine grower every day for 50 years. In a way, they inherited this vineyard and its work. They promised to take care of it and make a great wine. The vineyard is. In 2014, after 16 harvests in Lanziego, they gave definitive form to this project. They will make LZ, Lanzaga and two unique vineyards that are "La Estrada" and "El Velado". They also gave life to a wine that was formerly made in La Rioja called Rioja Corriente, Rioja newspaper. The idea of making village wines and exceptional vineyards acquires its full meaning here. In 2016, in 18 years they consolidated a very interesting vineyard of 20 hectares in Ribera del Duero. They decided to make a wine mixed with grapes from five towns: Pardilla, Fuentemolinos, Fuentecén, Roa and Sotillo de la Ribera. In this last one they took root and bought a house of 1730. It will be his winery and where his new wine of Matallana will be born. In 2018 they take over the Pazo de Valvuxán, a place full of history, very close to the vineyards of As Ermitas and Sta. Cruz. They like the idea of restoring it. It is, in short, what they have done all these years: restore vineyards, fix old walls, replant original vines, plant native trees and try to improve the sites they find ...
