Integral and environmentally friendly agriculture. Grapes come from free-standing vines that are between 25-80 years old. Vines are from dry-farmed vineyards, in the traditional low vine plantation system. Soil is mostly clay-silt-sand with a high content of gravel and low yield of 4500-5000 kg per hectare. Grapes are selected according to the vineyard of greater maturation. Grapes are hand-picked and placed in boxes of 20 kg.
The elaboration consists of a traditional method with fermentations no higher than a temperature of 25ºC , being the maceration and fermentation done in stainless steel tanks, and ageing in Spanish and American oak barrels. Clarified with plant protein, allergen-free, mildly cold stabilized and tangential filtering. Ageing minimum of 7 months in Spanish oak barrels 40% (Quercus pyrenaica) and American oak 60%.
The label has been designed by a very famous artist from Toro, Carlos Adeva. It represents the sailing of "La Pinta", the fastest of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first transatlantic voyage in 1492. The "La Pinta" cellar was full of Toro wines.
In Toro, in 1505, King Fernando "el Católico" granted Castilian citizenship to the navigator and cartographer Américo vespucci. He became interested in Columbus' travels, investing, it is believed, in the second trip. It was Americo who realized that the lands discovered by Christopher Columbus did not belong to the Indies, thus naming in his honor a new continent, America.
The advantageous relations carried out by Columbus in the Court of the country that today forms the province of Venezuela, excited the greed of Américo Vespucio, moved and supported by the Medicci, who joined Alonso de Ojeda, commissioned by the Government to continue the discoveries of Colon. Spanish moderation was a victim against the support of the Medicci towards Vespucci, in addition to the advantages offered by Vespucci's geographical knowledge, so that Ojeda and Columbus had to yield to the imposture of Americo, the glory of giving his name to the New World, despite the efforts that history has made to restore this honor to its rightful owner, Christopher Columbus.
At Bodegas Díez Gómez, we suggest that the appointment of America is in honor of a "Toresano", Americo Vespucio.

Bodegas Díez Gómez, was born from the interests and passions of Óscar and Laura; Óscar an expert in winemaking and Laura an expert in the folklore dance (that´s the reason that on the wine labels there is folklore). This combination, together with a long family history in hospitality and wine, gives shape to Bodegas Díez Gómez. They own 12 hectares of own vineyard, under the seal of quality of the Regulatory Council of the Toro Denomination of Origin and under the influence of the Duero River, producing a limited number of bottles.
