"Numanthia's genesis:the virtuesof resilience"



Bodega Numanthia was named in tribute to the town of Numancia, renowned in antiquity for its legendary resistance to Roman invasion. Under attack from raiding legions in 134 BC, the townspeople fought to the last, choosing death over the dishonor of surrender. Such tenacity and resilience must run in the soil, for many of the estate’s vines date back well over a century. Bodega Numanthia lies among hills sculpted by the River Duero in North-Western Spain, not far from the Portuguese border. The climate is extreme with hot, dry summers and cold winters, but these are tough, tenacious vines that resisted the phylloxera epidemic when it ravaged Europe’s vineyards in the 19th century. Wine has been made in Toro for over two thousand years. Tradition has it that a young wine grower may well be tending vines his great-grandfather planted. The Tinta de Toro, from the Tempranillo family, is a grape variety that rewards meticulous vinification by revealing an intense, complex character. The wines are concentrated and powerful in essence, their berry-fruit notes balanced by a silky, elegant texture. Bodega Numanthia’s first vineyards were planted in 1880, and today the estate continues to pioneer the rebirth of resilient Toro’s wines.
