Since 1987, Jorge Ordóñez’s personal crusade has been to seek out and preserve Spain’s rich history of grape growing and winemaking. His philosophy is centered on the belief that Spain’s potential lies in its bounty of ancient vineyard sites planted with the oldest clones of indigenous cultivars. Over the years, Jorge has achieved an impressive list of accolades; twice named one of the Top 20 Wine Personalities of the Year by Robert Parker, who also named him one of the most influential wine personalities of the past 20 years.
After the sale of Numanthia, which he co-owned with the Eugueren family, Jorge founded Bodegas Ordóñez, his personal project in D.O. Toro.
