๐—”๐—น๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐——๐—ถ๐—ผ๐˜€ started his winemaking career in solitary back in 2008 by recovering one old abandoned vineyard, the heritage of his grandfather. 

 

The vineyards planted in Toro are based in sandy soils at 750m asl in an extreme continental climate, a fact which contributes to good retention of the acidity and to the development of an aromatic bouquet. Alvar has worked organically since 2009, and in 2014 started to apply some Biodynamic methods too. Tinta de Toro โ€“ aka Tempranillo โ€“ is the main grape here. 

 

Alvar focuses on harvesting high-quality grapes, respecting the fruit by using low intervention methods at the winery in order to show the full expression of the terroir in Toro. Alvarโ€™s vision of winemaking results in very aromatic, soft, and delicate fruit-forward wines with plenty of freshness; very different than the traditional style of making wine in Toro: punchy alcoholic and tannic contenders.

 

In old times, famine devastated this specific area of northern Spain, Toro. At that time, there was a man called Tiฬo Uco (Uncle Uco) who defended his hometown against those neighbours who attacked to take control of the best plots of land. This wine is a tribute to that man.
