Alvar de Dios

Toro is like the 1980s – big shoulder pads, teased hair and a gaudy energy that seems to be chemically enhanced. It’s a DO that, in most regards, is caught in a time warp, much like that mauve and teal bathroom you’ve been meaning to remodel. Having built its reputation on a style of wine… Read more »

Established in 2004, the beautiful ultra-modern facility of Losada Vinos de Finca lies in the heart of Bierzo’s finest vineyard area. Following an explosive period in which the Bierzo region leapt to worldwide fame on the merits of a few highly-extracted and noticeably oaky wines, Losada’s founding philosophy is to take the region’s wine to… Read more »
