Characteristics of Encomienda de la Vega
Encomienda de la Vega is a red wine from D.O. Toro, the 'small' one of Bodegas Divina Proporción. In 2009 they began to construct the winery and in 2012 they planted the vines around the building. The first wine arrived in 2011.
This wine is a single variety Tinta de Toro grown in 15 hectares of their own vineyards with vines of a minimum age of 30 years old, located around the winery, over 600-900 metres above sea level.
The climate in this area is extreme as the winters are already very cold (minimum of -10 degrees) and summers are very warm (maximum of 40 degrees)
The harvest is done by hand and in small crates in order to ensure they arrive at the winery intact. The selection of the grape is the same in the vineyards as in the winery, the quality is fundamental. After the maceration of the grapes in stainless steel deposits, they undergo a fermentation with local yeast for 10 days.
Finally, Encomienda de la Vega rest in French and American oak barrels for 5 months in order to gain longevity without losing freshness and joy.

It has a long and persistent finish which leaves fruity and spicy notes in the aftertaste. A red wine with an unbeatable value (and pleasure) for money.
D.O. Toro is a Denomination of Origin that is situated in the north west of Spain, along the River Duero and its tributaries. From the beginning the Tinta de Toro variety has produced great red wine that is full of flavour and complexity: powerful and full bodied with great tannins.
Máximo San José de La Rosa and his brother Juan know that a wine's soul is in the vines. That is why they show a maximal respect of the land. All the Tinta de Toro vineyards from which their wines are elaborated (15 ha owned by the winery and 15 ha from different winegrowers grown under the winery's advice) are being converted to organic agriculture, with the maximum respect towards the grapes shown in each of the procedures and avoiding all kind of mechanic movements or traumatic procedures. The result of their good job is their three soul wines with their own personality, in which the aromas of fruit are released with the aromas provided by a masterful use of wood, which complements the fruit elegantly without taking up all the attention and without masking the aromas of fruit.
