Wences Gil is one of the most experienced winemakers of Spain. During his youth he decided to explore different wine regions to gain knowledge and after years of harvesting experience, he arrived at Toro and discovered that that is where he wanted to start his personal and professional project.
This wine is made with grapes from old vineyards, planted as ungrafted vines, the first that Wences saw on arrival and the ones that made him fall in love with Toro. These vineyards give character, a great personality and make this a modern wine made for enjoyment.
This wine does credit to that time in a person's life, when he realises he is where he wants to be, doing what he wants to do, the time when that smile shines on his face, the same smile we hope will appear with this wine.
