Characteristics of El Transistor
Wine by Telmo Rodríguez produced in the region of Rueda, where they already produce Basa. This wine is born as a result of the curiosity and research of Telmo. His objective is to extract the pureness and the tradition from the Verdejo.
Why the name of El Transistor? To deter the wild boars that visited the vineyards of the region during the night, they placed a transistor next to the vineyards.
Produced from old vineyards, they continue to use a recovered traditional method, characterized by a gentle fermentation with local yeasts and a subsequent ageing for 9 months in oak barrels of different sizes.
An authentic wine, with great complexity and elegance, where the wood does not take over.

The D.O. Rueda is a denomination spanning across Castilla y León, along the River Duero and its tributaries. It is mainly white wines that are produced in this D.O., and Verdejo grapes are by far the most popular variety. With hints of flowers, fruit, scrub herbs and very fine aromas, these grapes give the wine a very strong personality.
It is safe to say that Telmo Rodríguez has the reputation of being one of the pioneers and best "driving winemakers", that is, winemakers that travel to different areas to produce wines from the same harvest, using only native varieties from their original regions, apart from paying special attention to the recovery of abandoned vineyards. Currently, Telmo Rodríguez, who enjoys being a winemaker more than an oenologist, is known in the wine industry for being one of the promoters of Spanish winemaking.
