Pago la Jara is Telmo’s flagship wine from Toro, made in minute quantities. Opulent and dense, but with trademark balance and seamless style, Pago la Jara represents the world-class level the terroir of Toro can display.

As Caborcas 2016

Valdeorras, Spain

As Caborcas is a wine based on old-vine Mencia made from a special single vineyard site in Valdeorras. The bush-vine parcels are traditional field blends and also include small quantities of native varieties Merenzao, Sousón, Garnacha, Godello and Brencellao.

Wine Advocate "The 2.5 hectares of north- and west-facing terraces planted with old vines produced the 2016 As Caborcas, a wine of unusual intensity, elegance and balance in 2016. The cooler year…

Gago 2016

Toro, Spain

Like all the Telmo Rodriguez wines from Toro, Gago is 100% Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo). Gago is the second wine made in Toro by Telmo Rodriguez. The Telmo Rodriguez range in Toro is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is both elegant and powerful. The 19th century lower-case “g” typeface that appears on all the Toro wines is transformed, and modernized, by a bull horn.

Wine Advocate "The 2016 Gago from Toro was surprisingly elegant. It matures in foudres that were bought in the year 2,000 and by now are well seasoned and neutral and seem to…

Gaba do Xil Mencia 2017

Valdeorras, Spain

The wine is named for the river Sil that flows through the region (Xil is its ancient name, used by the Celtic people who once inhabited the area).

Wine Advocate (90+) "It was hard to beat the superb 2016, but the 2017 Gaba do Xil Mencía was also perfumed and open, expressive, with a little more ripeness, with good volume and…

Rioja, Spain

The aim with La Social is to produce a completely pure and authentic expression of Rioja - a delicious, unpretentious, perfect everyday wine to enjoy in a social setting.

Jeb Dunnuck "Readers looking for a value-priced Rioja that delivers the goods should check out the 2015 La Social, which is based on 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and the rest Garnacha. Completely…

Wine Spectator “This red has a thick texture that delivers plum, forest floor and mineral flavors, supported by wellintegrated tannins and balsamic acidity. More savory than fruity, but remains balanced.“
