In the Zamora region of Toro, the climate, the land and the River Duero caress our centenarian vineyards in the lands of Salgadero, Matarredonda and Matalobas, where the Tinta de Toro grape was born, the best raw material to produce a great wine.
In the 19th century, our land faced the dreaded phylloxera. Today, our vines give us a grape with a rounded character and deep magenta in colour, as intense as the sun of this land and with the richness of centenarian the vineyards.
