The vineyards are located in Zamora, Valdefinjas and Villabuena. Toro is certainly famous for having many ungrafted/original vines here that have not been affected by the grape aphid (Pre-phylloxera). The sandy soils prevented the louse from digging tunnels to reach the area. This in contrast to more than 95% of all vineyards that were lost in that time, so we are still talking about ungrafted and therefore original authentic grapes (vines).

This is another top notch. 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). The grapes are picked exclusively by hand and collected in small boxes to avoid damage. The yield is 15hl/ha. 15 months aging in French oak. Harvested exclusively from vines that are 45 years old and older. Victorino is a very intensive versatile full-bodied Toro wine with a lot of body. Black fruit, cocoa, spices, minerals and a long impressive finish. Complex, concentrated, full, smooth wine. Ripe black fruit, minerals, spices, "roasted tones", ripe full tannins and an impressive aftertaste.

The EGUREN family sells its winery and with it NUMANTHIA and TERMANTHIA to Moët & Chandon. The EGUREN family has now started a new wine project in the DO Toro with TESO LA MONJA: Excellent plots in Zamora, Valdefinjas and Villabuena. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 650-800 m and have a mainly sandy soil. All plots are planted with "Tinta de Toro" - a grape variety related to the Tempranillo. The youngest vines are already 15-60 years old and the oldest between 60-100 years. The EGUREN family has made a sensational start with this new wine project. This version is a double magnum of 3 liters in a beautiful wooden box (OWC). Even tastier and stays nice to drink even longer.

The Spanish winery Teso La Monja is an exclusive winery and is one of the beautiful wineries of Hermanos Eguren.
