GONZALO GONZALO GRIJALBA, Rioja Alta (La Tejera) – Organic, Biodynamic principlesGonzalo Gonzalo was born in Logroño, Spain, and grew up among the vineyards that his parents cultivated in Fuenmayor. Fiercely protective of the terroir of his family vineyards Gonzalo rejects market driven fashions, formulae, chemical treatments, and conformism. Instead, he has sought out his own methods with respect for the land, his vineyards, and the traditions of his forefathers.

He balances this respect with formal training in the latest enological techniques and methods. The 100% Tempranillo vineyards themselves were planted 35 years ago in the town of Fuenmayor in the La Tejera subregion, which is an area between groves of trees along the Ebro River and Mount San Llorente in the heart of the Rioja Alta sub-zone. The soil is calcareous clay and the vineyards are 4.5 hectares in size. Gonzalo and his helpers, Teresa and Fernando, tend the vines methodically, and with perfection in mind, year-round and work only with the best grapes they can coax from the land. Using biodynamic methods, they follow the lunar cycle in the vineyard and the winery.
