The Toro region lies in the northwest of Spain, close to the border with Portugal. The wine production in the region dates back to the time of the Roman Empire.
The vines, 50 to 120 years of age, are well-adapted to the summer heat and the chilly winters, which are characteristic of the area. The prized grapes of these vines go into the making of the Bodega Numanthia wines.
The winery is named after the town of Numancia, known for its legendary resistance to the Roman Empire. The winemakers believe that the resistance still lives in the soil and in their vine, which has resisted phylloxera and can easily withstand extreme weather conditions.
The winery was established in 1880. Today, it is the leader in promoting the Tinta de Toro wines.
