Telmo Rodríguez and his partner and friend Pablo Eguzkiza set up Compañia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez in 1994. The project identifies old vineyards throughout Spain planted with native grape varieties, that they feel have potential.
In 1998, while working at Telmo's family winery Remelluri in Rioja Alavesa, they started to buy old vineyard sites around the town of Lanciego. This was the catalyst for Bodega Lanzaga. Their aim is to rediscover the ‘true’ historic taste of Rioja that they believe can only be achieved from the best sites.

The term Corriente was used in the early 20th Century to describe good, approachable everyday wines drunk by ordinary people, that reflect their region. Creamy and spicy, combining berries, spicy oak and earthy tannins, it makes an excellent food wine.

Grapes are hand-picked into small boxes. Fermentation is with native yeasts in 6,500-8,500kg concrete tanks. The wine is then aged for around 12 months in a mix of old oak barrels and foudre. Wines are lightly filtered before bottling.

Creamy and spicy, combining wild berries, spicy oak and some dusty tannins. Makes a great food wine.
