Located in the southeast of the province of Zamora, the Designation of Origen Toro continually touts promising messages about its wine-making potential. For all intents and purposes, nobody can deny that Toro reds are full of personality, having earned their reputation through the providential capacity of their high-toned and attractive must which has been included in many other blends both in Spain and abroad.
The wines of the D.O. Toro region have historically revelled in their great significance and universal approval. The D.O. Toro dates back to 1987 and covers an area of 14,300 Acres consisting of mostly old, pre-phylloxera vineyards. It is currently composed of 1,000 viticulturists and 64 active wineries.
Toro currently produces 23,700 tonnes of grapes in 15 municipalities: 12 in the province of Zamora and 3 in that of Valladolid. The land contains a wide diversity of soil types, from sandy loam clay to crushed rock, bathed by the Duero River and some of its tributaries like the Guareña and the San Román.
Thus, the D.O. Toro has a natural capacity to produce first-rate wines with great prospects for the future helping to introduce these wines into national and international markets, endowing the region with the honourable recognition as being one of the best viticulture areas of the world.
