Bodega Lanzaga is a project of Telmo Rodriguez (best known for his family's Rioja estate, Remelluri, which he brought to fame in the early 1990's) and his partner, Pablo Ejuzkiza. Known as Compania de Vinos, Telmo and Pablo's collaboration aims to identify and restore ancient, indigenous varieties in top vineyards in places like Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro, Rueda, Cigales, Valdeorras, Cebreros, Alicante and Málaga. In 1999, they purchased a 17th century Bodega in Oullari, a small village south of Haro in Rioja, and set about trying to understand how Rioja was made before phylloxera, chemicals and machines. Lanzaga now consists of 19 hectares of organically farmed vineyards, and Telmo hopes to recreate the vineyards of 150 years ago, where as many as 50 varietals would be co-planted and made into a true field-blend. 

El Velado (the veiled one) is 0.92 hectare vineyard located in Lanciego at an altitude of 620 meters that typifies the meeting of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Planted primarily to Garnacha alongside Tempranillo and a few white varietals, El Velado is fermented with natural yeasts in open top casks and aged for 16 months in large oak barrels. The wine is balanced and fresh with good energy and a core of Garnacha fruit complemented by the unmistakable imprint of Tempranillo and the terruño of Rioja.
