Our beginnings go back to 1844, when the family founded a small wine cellar in an old windmill known as La Noria, in the hillside of Castillo de Aguilar de la Frontera. Back then, wine was made in a rudimentary way and commercialized in the family tavern.
In 1922, after some generations, José María Toro Albalá acquired and reformed the town’ sold power plant for the purpose of transferring the wine cellar and storing wines to age them for years until they became oenological gems. Bodegas Toro Albalá was then established, achieving a true feat back at that time and a philosophy preserved to this day.
With the generational change in the 70’s, Antonio Sánchez strived in search for the winery’s distinctiveness and own personality, betting on the vintage system and obtaining unmistakable wines. Nowadays, Bodegas Toro Albalá is considered one of the 100 Spanish Golden Wineries and it can be found on the world’s most remarkable dining tables.
