PRODUCER:

Javier Ortega ‘Pipeta’, oenologist and owner, began his path in this world 20 years ago. Clearly influenced by the figure of his father who had sold wines from the best regions in Spain during all his life. Javier has spent his last years elaborating wines in the best growing areas and they have been awarded by excellent rates. Part of the 25ha of vineyard of his property are inherited, the rest has been adquired during the years from well-known best winegrowers in the area. This is a crucial factor contributing to the excellent quality of this wine.

Toro DO is considered one of the world’s most premium wine regions thanks to the quality and unmistakeable character of its wines.
