Teso la Monja in D.O. Toro is the reflection of the love and respect renowned Rioja winemaking family Eguren has for the region. The Eguren family which owns famous Rioja wineries Sierra Cantabria, San Vicente and Vinedos de Paganos made their first wines in Toro with Numanthia and Termanthia. After the critical success of these wines, the project was sold to Moet Hennessy, the French luxury wine and spirits group. But not before the Eguren family planted seeds for the Teso la Monja project with a new winery and 100 hectares of vineyard that included 130 year old vines. The Teso la Monja wines are proudly bold as Toro wines are, but older vines yielding less but better quality fruits and careful winemaking result in wines that are nonetheless restrained and complex.
