Vins

Toro, a region known for bull fighting, is also the home of bold red wines made from a clone (some might argue an evolution) of Tempranillo called Tinto de Toro. The sandy soils, hot days, and cold nights lead to an aggressive and bold wine perfect for the colder months and wonderful with tapas.
