Characteristics of Tio Uco

Tio Uco is a red wine produced by Alvar de Dios Hernández in the town of El Pego, D.O. Toro.

After working in several different wineries, Alvar de Dios decided to start his own personal project, demonstrating the value of the old vines owned by his grandfather in the town of El Pego. His clear effort towards an organic-biodynamic cultivation and a classic production, result in fine and tasty wines. Alvar de Dios has managed to position himself amongst the most important winemakers of the area.

Tio Uco is a red wine made with Tinta de Toro and Grenache from three vineyards located at around 750 metres of altitude, planted on mainly sandy soils. The Grenache is over 60 years old and the Tinta de Toro is between 25 and 40 years old.

Harvest is performed by hand. Once the grapes arrive at the winery they are stomped. They are fermented with native yeasts at a controlled temperature. The ageing is carried out in foudres and large barrels for 5 months. This wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering.

Tasting notes Tio Uco

Tio Uco 2018 is a juicy red wine with intense aromas of red fruits, mineral notes and menthol touches. On the palate this fruity character persists, making it fresh, smooth and agile. A flavoursome and intense wine with good acidity and a long and pleasant mid-palate.
Tio Uco 2016 is a fluid, juicy and fruity red wine. This vintage is very elegant on the nose, with fresh red fruit, light floral notes and a spicy touch. In the mouth, it is easy to drink and quite persistent.

Designation of Origin D.O. Toro

Winery Alvar de Dios Hernandez

In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
