Bodegas Vetus has vineyards in the DO Toro but also in the DO Rueda) and belongs to the Grupo Artevino. Vetus comes from the Latin word veto - vetare, which means "forbidden, not allowed." The vineyards are located at an altitude of 810 to 930 meters in the northernmost zone of Rueda (Segovía). Here, the harvest is three weeks later than in the rest of the DO . When you put the bottle cold, you notice that the butterfly on the label turns blue at 8°C.

The grapes for the Flor de Vetus Verdejo are first destemmed, selected and then fermented in stainless steel at a low temperature so that all flavors have time to integrate. This absolutely Verdejo has a bright straw yellow color with green reflections in the glass as it should be (Ver = Green). This is a fresh white wine with intense and harmonious aromas and a rich fruit expression. Great olfactory expression of the Verdejo character: citrus, grassy, lime note, seductive exoticism in the background. The taste palette is a confirmation of the olfactory components: spicy acidity towards gooseberry, lively and crispy style interwoven with a ripe and juicy acidity and with a tight and mineral finish.

Vineyard for 2022 Bodegas Vetus Flor de Vetus Verdejo

Bodegas Vetus situated in the beautiful Toro area is characterized by a strive for excellent groundbreaking quality in its wine. Using state-of-the-art technologies and working with excellent grape qualities, this bodega reflects the essence of the Toro wine. Naturally, the best French woods are used to impose the wine. Due to a double manual selection of the grapes both in the vineyard and on the selection table, only the best grapes are eligible for vinification.

Since its founding in 2003, Bodegas Vetus has been committed to preserving the all-essential regional character of the Toro, while at the same time adding the winery new concepts. In 2003, the Antón family (the face of Grupo Artevino) expanded to the Toro region, well aware of the region's future potential. After selecting several vineyards, they made the first vintage from Vetus, a wine designed to fully preserve the essence of the region, but also complement it with new nuances and goals. Encouraged by the success of the wine, an estate was set up in the heart of the region and a bodega was built which opened in 2008. The bodega's design is modern and balanced and consists of 3 buildings, each in harmony with the others. Each building houses a different wine production process.

Bodegas Vetus is built on a ridge and overlooks the beautiful estate. The vineyards are planted with Tinta de Toro and are close to the town of Toro, in the heart of the region.
