When the D.O. Toro was created in 1987, Roberto San Ildefonso from Rioja was one of only a handful of winemakers who saw the region’s true potential. His winery, Finca Sobreño, was one of the first ten wineries in the new denomination, which today includes over 50 producers. Finca Sobreño’s first vintage in 1998 soon started earning acclaim and the winery became known as “the new star of the Douro.” It sits among 24 hectares of vineyards but it owns a total of 80, including 25 of certified organic vines. These vineyards have an average age of 30 years and many vines are prephylloxera, meaning they are planted directly without the need for grafting. The resulting wines are clean, bright and balanced, with the deep, intense colour that is characteristic of the highly regarded wines from Toro.
