Guímaro, rebel and nonconformist

Pedro and Isaac at Guímaro
These are somehow most important  features of Pedro Rodriguez, the " alma mater of the winery ," who confesses that this is the meaning that lies behind the brand that is revolutionizing the way of making wine since its inception in the early nineties; and that's the character he wants to give to their wines.

When you meet Pedro at first in his winery, which attracts attention is what a warm and friendly he is, as well as his simplicity and generosity. Since the first moment conveys his enthusiasm for making wine, and for the innovation. He started in the world of law, but fortunately for wine lovers, twisted his career (as he says) .

Y así es Pedro Rodríguez, el “alma mater de la bodega”, quien nos confiesa que ese es el significado que se oculta tras esa marca capaz de revolucionar la manera de elaborar vino desde sus inicios a comienzos de los noventa; y ese es el carácter que quiere imprimir a sus vinos...  

Cuando conoces a Pedro en su bodega llaman la atención su cercanía, su simpatía, así como su sencillez y generosidad. Desde el primer instante transmite su entusiasmo por hacer vino, y por innovar.  Él se inició en el mundo del derecho, pero afortunadamente para los amantes del vino, su carrera se torció (como él mismo dice).
