Collection: Campiña

Bodegas Campiña is a small cooperative (no more than 12 members) which, under the impetus of a passionate team, is constantly on the lookout for quality, based on the local grape, the Tinta de Toro. It was and remains the wish of the members of the cooperative to cultivate the vines planted by their parents and grandparents. Inspired and led by Rosa Maria Zarza, delicious and affordable wines are made here from grapes grown on old vines. Rosa Maria is a famous oenologist who makes wine in various D.O.s but who originally comes from Toro - hence her relentless drive to get the best out of the nature of her place of birth. The bodega manages 100 hectares of vineyards spread across the different districts of the D.O. Toro: Toro, Venialbo, Morales de Toro, Villabuena del Puente, etc. ... 40% of the vines are at least 80 years old, and none is younger than 20 years old.

D.O. Toro (Province of Zamora) enjoys a reputation for making outstanding, full-bodied, bold wines. This area has a dry, continental climate with temperatures between -13°C and 40°C, at an altitude of about 700 metres, and a sandy topsoil with a deep clay subsoil. The grape is Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo).

As a historic winemaking area, Toro has made an enormous comeback in the last fifteen years. Its rich, ripe and bold red wines, made from native Tinta de Toro grapes, revealed their potential after a new generation of well-trained winemakers started working here and made much needed investments in stainless steel equipment. Over the last decade steady improvements have been made in harvesting methods.
What makes Toro wine so special – and what has brought it renown since the Middle Ages – is a combination of exceptional boldness, fruitiness, freshness and acidity, as well as the ability to age well.
