Toro’s inhospitable terroir affords it a unique opportunity to create world-class wines. Just west of Rueda, closer to Portugal than to Rioja, Toro has a dry, extreme continental climate, with summer temperatures of 110° F and winters that dip 30 degrees below freezing, with less than 16 inches of annual rainfall. During the Middle Ages, Toro was a powerful wine region producing famous wines so revered that it is said that the wine Christopher Columbus took on his journey to discover America was from Toro.
