Castilla y León-Toro

Region:

The Estate consists of 15 ha spread over small plots in the province of Zamora. Ramón Ramos is the third-generation winemaker in the family. He works the vineyard with an obsessive attention to detail: ungrafted centennial vines from the native variety Tinta de Toro grown on rocky, sandy, very poor soil, with boulders, (Phylloxera can’t live on barren soils); dry farming, vines are planted of 12 feet apart, to ensure roots reach the bedrock. As a result, yields are very low, an average of only 2-3 lbs per plant. The grapes, picked by hand at dawn in small 40 lbs cases, spontaneous fermentation in small concrete tanks, plot by plot, using only native yeasts. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration.
