History in under a Minute

For centuries the Toro region has based its existence and well-being on the commercial activity derived from viticulture, vine cultivation, and wine production for over 1000 years. The red Tinto de Toro variety is the main and majority variety in the cultivated area with a unique character and flavour. Lots of Toro vineyards extensions survived in recent times a big European virus: the phylloxera. Today some of those vineyards still produce high-quality wine, and treasure a unique landscape of pre-phylloxera vines.

The uncountable underground cellars in Toro town preserve a lot of that popular culture. The cooperative historical wine cellar right in the middle of Toro - known as La Niña Bonita from 1652 - represents a climax of wine heritage, co-working tradition, history and technical architecture of the XVII century. It consists of several floors that follow one another on different levels, preserved in perfect condition.
