NUMANTHIA ESTATE IS FOUNDED

Founded in 1998, Bodega Numanthia, located in Valdefinjas, Castile and León, in the Northwest of Spain, is a veritable emblem of the Toro region wines. 

Bodega Numanthia is living tribute to the fearless warriors of Numancia in Spain, whose inhabitants heroically resisted the Roman army for 20 years in 134 B.C. and finally preferred to sacrifice their lives rather than surrender.

This resilience is also found in the Toro wines in a region with longstanding traditions in winemaking and viticulture. These vineyards were planted by pioneer families centuries ago, back in roman times and since then, they have shown resilience surviving the phylloxera plague during the XIXth century and the extreme climate conditions typical of the region year after year. During the Middle ages, Toro wines were also the first in the world to travel to the Americas, carried on Christopher Columbus’ ships in 1492. 

The vineyards, aged between 70 and 120 years old with some reaching up to 150 years old, can resist extreme weather conditions and very dry seasons thanks to layers of clay in the sub-soil below a surface of sandy rocks.

TERMANTHIA 2004,
100PTS IN WINE ADVOCATE

Opaque purple-coloured, the wine… has a sensational balance,
and a seamlessness that must be tasted to be believed.
It should age like a great vintage of Lafite or Latour and have at least a 50-year life span.
If you have a soul, sell it to the devil for a few bottles...

ART OF THE VINE PROJECT

Art of the Vine is a partnership with French artist Zoé Ouvrier who designed 5L boxes for Numanthia’s wine in order to perpetuate the legend of the city of Numancia. 134 5L bottles were drawn from three exceptional and dedicated 225L barrels.
