Estate

Matsu, which in Japanese means to wait, is a tribute to all the wine growers who, for generations, have devoted their efforts, wisdom, respect and sacrifice to working the vineyards. The wines, which come from old vineyards that are cared for according to traditional methods and following the times that nature sets, preserve the boldness of the Toro D. O., combining it with an alluring smoothness. A philosophy of respect for natural processes is followed when taking care of the vine and making the wine in the bodega, and external intervention is kept to a minimum. Harvesting is carried out manually with a careful selection of grapes and always picked at the optimum moment of maturity. The grapes were harvested in boxes and in small trailers, which were then quickly taken to the winery. This is a unique and visually stimulating wine portfolio that over delivers on both price and quality.
