About Bodegas Toro Albalá:
The remarkable story of Bodegas Toro Albalá begins in 1844, when the Toro Albalá Family established a small wine cellar to provide their beloved family tavern with house wine. Through the generations, in 1922, José María Toro Albalá made a significant investment by acquiring the town's power plant, which he transformed into a wine cellar. This move was a turning point, allowing the family's wine to become more than just a beverage; it marked the official founding of Bodegas Toro Albalá.
Fast-forwarding to the 1970s, Antonio Sánchez introduced a pioneering approach to winemaking. He focused his passion on Andalusia's unique grape variety, the Pedro Ximénez of Montilla Moriles, and crafted it into a true masterpiece, putting Bodegas Toro Albalá on the global stage as a producer of exceptional wines.
