Finca Volvoreta is a small family producer fifteen minutes outside of Zamora, a charming town where the famous Duero River borders its walls, in the heart of Castilla y Leon. The winery was the first certified organic bodega in the entire region, let alone in the D.O. Toro, and continues to push their environmental consciousness to inspirational heights. Antonio Alfonso grew up making wine with his father, and has now passed on the winemaking duties to his daughter Maria, who at the time of carrying that torch, was the youngest female winemaker in Spain's history. The estate farms 15 hectares of vineyards (with many bio-dynamic practices) within their 100 hectares of organic property, in the highest elevation of sun-scorched hills in the region. Volvoreta’s Flores de Cerezo is the winery’s youngest and freshest bottling from the property. This bottling comes from the younger vines of their organically and biodynamically grown Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro), on their estate vines that sit at about nearly 800 meters above sea level. The wine is fermented in stainless steel with only natural occurring yeasts, and is moved to used French oak for malolactic fermentation and a short aging before the wine is bottled and released to the market. The fruit from the property is noted for its ‘above average’ antioxidants, and is promoted by the major health clinics of Spanish Universities. This Toro shows bright and very expressive black and purple fruits, while still accentuating the earthy and gamey notes that are so prevalent in Maria’s wines.
