For centuries now,
the best area in Toro to grow fruit, vegetables and plant vineyards is “El Oro”. Its privileged situation, close to the river Duero on the eastern part of the town of Toro, was perfect to avoid the early frosts in spring time. The area’s distinctive red soils have a clay base and are covered by rolling stones making them ideal to grow grapes that mature slowly.
the San Ildefonso family, pioneers in the area, carried out a selection of parcels around this privileged location to produce their “Pago del Oro” wines. Thanks to a constant and careful terroir selection, the San Ildefonso family is at the forefront of the modern style in Toro with wines that offer great fruit concentration and character.
