After an extremely successful adventure with Vega Sicilia and Bodegas Mauro, the legendary winemaker Mariano García decided to bet on the potential of Toro wines and his land to produce quality and recognized red wines that are characteristic of the Toro Designation of Origin. The wines show the characteristics of a region with an extreme continental climate, minimal rainfall, abundant hours of sunshine and strong thermal contrasts during the day and night.

San Román Bodegas y Viñedos, together with Bodegas Mauro and Garmón Continental, form the specific trilogy of the García family, three interpretations of the Duero Valley by winemaker Mariano García together with his sons Eduardo and Alberto.

The topper from Castillo y Léon. For years one of the most sought after wines from Spain with a great Value for Money. The purple-colored Prima is composed of 90% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) and 10% Garnacha and is aged for 12 months in French oak and then bottled without filtration. Earthy minerals, espresso, truffle, licorice and black currant aromas lead to a ripe, dense, sweet-fruited, diverse wine. In the taste refined dark red fruit and subtle wood. Full, elegant wine with a clear Toro character.

The average age of the vineyards is 35 years, with a low density of plantations which, however, increased in the new plantations, to generate competition between roots and regulate the vigor of the plant. Some older vines were planted without a rootstock because phylloxera was not affected in this area. The soils are loose, stony or sandy, depending on the areas, with clayey soils where the plant can be watered in times of drought.
