Celsus is a single-variety Tinta de Toro wine made by Bodegas Vetus in the D.O. Toro (Castilla y León).
 
Owned by Artevino, the group that also owns Bodegas Orben, Bodegas Villacreces and Izadi, the Bodega Vetus project is run by the Antón family in Zamora. With 20 hectares planted with the Tinta de Toro variety and a modern, newly built winery, they have managed to keep up with the times without leaving behind the essence of the D.O. Toro.
 
Celsus comes from a very old, pre-phylloxera estate called Camparrón in Morales. Facing north-south and lying at 700 metres above sea level, the vineyard is about 1.3 hectares with vines planted on sandy loam soil. These vines are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is manual. 
 
After the manual harvest, there is a double selection process and the Celsus grapes are destemmed to ferment in conical 3000-litre tanks. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in new French oak barrels, where the wine ages for 14 months. It is bottled without clarifying or filtering.
 
Celsus is complex, elegant, limited production wine, and the flagship product from this winery. A great red created to show the full essence of Toro in its most modern interpretation.

Since 2003, Bodegas Vetus chooses to preserve the essence of Toro, at the same time as they are inspired by the discovery of new concepts, new nuances. His extensive experience in the hotel and restaurant business lead Gonzalo Antón to create a wine, Vetus, which soon became one of the most appreciated ones in restaurants. The addition of new production techniques and his desire to continue improving have drawn him towards creating his own style, which consolidated over time. Quality, the connection with gastronomy and the fondness for the land, are the main pillars of Bodega Vetus.
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.
