Compañía Vitivinícola Tandem was founded in January 2003 by Alicia Eyaralar, José María Fraile and a small group of wine-loving relatives and friends.
After extensive careers in winemaking and marketing, first together and later separately in different wineries, there was a growing interest in starting up Tandem.
Tandem means “at last” and represents the aspiration of its two partners and promoters, to fulfil a dream and the mission which they have taken upon themselves.
Our loved ones and close friends are very important to us and will be kept forever in our memories. Enrique Rodríguez passed away in the February of 2006 and Jose Mari Fraile senior in the October of 2011.
