Toro Wines

Toro

Toro is located in the same dry regions as Rueda (Castilla y Leon).

Due to high temperatures, sunshine, and low rainfall the area produces strong, high-alcohol wines.

Tempranillo is the dominant grape. It is locally known as Tinta de Toro.

Some Garnacha is grown for use in Toro Rosado, as well as some Malvasia Blanca and Verdejo for use in white Toro Blanco.
