Firmly rooted into Spanish history and terroir, Bodega Numanthia is the birthplace of powerful and intense wines, iconic incarnations of the prestigious Designation of Origin Toro. The name of the estate dates back to Roman times. In 134 B.C., the residents of the ancient city of Numancia resisted the Roman invaders, choosing to die over surrender. This noble heritage echoes the Numanthia terroir: its hardy and resistant vines have been able to endure the region’s extreme climate conditions – harsh winters and scorching summers – as well as the phylloxera attack which destroyed most of Europe’s vineyards in the 19th century. Situated in the northwest Spain, on clay plateaus and slopes, these old vineyards produce intense and powerful vintages year after year.
