NUESTRA HISTORIA

Napa Valley winemaker and Mexican native Luis Rodriguez recently released his first wine from a vineyard he planted in Mexico’s northern Baja California.

The 2010 RoLu Vino Tinto—an upscale red blend comprised of Tempranillo, Nebbiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon—is only sold in Mexico, and distributed by Vinos Wagner.

Rodriguez, a winemaker at Caymus Vineyards in Rutherford, Napa Valley, grew up in Mexico and moved to the United States as a teenager for a better education and to find work. In 1990, Chuck Wagner, winegrower, winemaker and owner at Caymus, hired the then-19-year-old Rodriguez to work on the winery’s bottling line. Through the years Rodriguez worked his way up to the assistant winemaking post he now holds. Chuck Wagner states, "Luis came up through the ranks due to his love for wine. I consider him one of the top winemakers in the world today, an unsung hero of this highly competitive fine wine industry.”

In 2001, Rodriguez took a trip to Mexico where on a whim he bought a half-ton of Tempranillo grapes from a small grower in San Vicente, a region located in northern Baja California. He soon found himself planting 20 acres of vines at the same location. Even though many commercial vineyards have been planted north of San Vicente in what is referred to as ‘the Napa Valley of Mexico’, Rodriguez preferred the cooler climate where he put in vines.

520 cases of this vineyard-designated wine have been produced. Rodriguez has named it RoLu.

“The vineyard is in the middle of nowhere,” Rodriguez said. “It’s identified only by the ighway 1 kilometer coordinate 105.5. I decided to include it on the label.”

The wine, aged for 16 months in French oak, is rich and powerful, with layer after layer of expressive fruit. It retails for $980 pesos/750ml bottle. The name RoLu is a play on the winemaker’s first and last names.

Although his winery is very basic, Luis made sure he had everything on hand to make really good wine. Currently there are no tours available of his humble abode, which consists of a few stainless steel tanks and a small temperature controlled barrel room with a handful of 225-liter French oak barrels, but who’s to say what the future may hold. For now he divides his time between Caymus and RoLu, sharing some the responsibilities for his new winery venture with his son, Luis Jr.
