In 1994, Pablo Eguzkiza and Telmo Rodríguez along with a third winemaker make wine from Grenache from old vines in glass of Navarre. The wine is called 'Alma' ('Soul' in English). These were the beginnings of a winery, which originally was called 'Compañía de Vinos de La Granja' (in Englisch 'The Wine Company from the Farm'). A name that already explained it all: it was clear that the company would produce more wines and paid tribute to La Granja, the famous and historic glass factory, witness of Spanish exceptional craftmanship, which today has almost disappeared.More about the Winery
