Emilio set up Bodegas Emilio Rojo back in 1987 after a career as an engineer. Based in the Ribeiro region of Galicia his move back to his native land involved the restoration of two hectares of ancient terraced hillside vineyards and a commitment to organic farming. After the outbreak of phylloxera many indigenous Galician varieties were replaced by Palomino including those in what would ultimately become Emilio’s vineyard. These were almost immediately replaced throughout 1987 and 1988 by local varieties Treixadura, Loureira, Albariño, Lado, Torrontés and Godello.
