49800 TORO – ZAMORA

The visit starts in the bodega’s Ageing Hall, next to Toro’s “Espolón” promenade (the Spur), a few metres from the Collegiate Church.

DESCRIPTION

Many of you may know the legendary tavern “Casa del Abuelo”, in the heart of Madrid, but very few realise that it is associated with one of the most traditional wineries in Toro: “Viña del Abuelo”.

The wines of Toro have a very characteristic tradition and personality. Proof of this ancient heritage are the wines produced by this winery. Their vines are more than 30 years old, all belonging to the Tinta de Toro variety, a local version of Tempranillo. The Ageing Hall has a superb location: at the side of the Collegiate Church, next to a natural viewpoint with spectacular views of the Duero valley. Here you can find a complete range of wines, from the simplest to the most complex, such as the Grand Special Selection.

RUTAS APARTE suggests that you become ‘winemaker for a day’ in this bodega, the guardian of the heart of Toro. Enjoy the tastings, find out all about the winemaking techniques and relax in the tranquillity of the vineyard.
