Tinta de Toro is a Spanish grape variety grown in the region of Toro (Zamora). Its origins date back to Romans times around 2nd century B.C.
After the plague of philoxere, in the 19th century, Spanish vineyards were re-converted. However, Tinta de Toro managed to survive this disease and today there are vines with more than 150 years.
It is a strong and resistant grape against the winter ice, with early maturation and a vigourous plant with compact bunches, of a medium size, with grains of a colour black- bluish. The severe climate and the dry and stone soils provide a particular strength and elegance to grapes.
