Grower Website Vega Tolosa Region: Spain - Castilla - La Mancha

Vega Tolosa was founded by the Tolosa family in 1905 in the eastern part of Castilla-la Mancha and is run today by Juan Miguel Tolosa, the third generation of the family. There are a total of 150 hectares (375 acres) with 40.46 ha (100 acres) of 80-year-old head-pruned Bobal.

Manchuela lies to the northeast of the La Mancha between the Júcar and Cabriel River valleys, and above the coastal plains of Valencia and Alicante. The region represents the ancestral home of one of Spain’s most interesting and underappreciated red varieties, Bobal.

Located 750m (2460 ft) above sea level, Vega Tolosa’s vineyards enjoy a wide diurnal temperature variation and constant breeze. Calcareous clay soils retain moisture and provide minerality. Minimal to no intervention is required in the organically certified vineyards. Through low yields and careful winemaking, the purest expression of Bobal is the Tolosa family’s primary objective.
