The wine

Corral de Campanas is an intriguing wine, an absolute delight from the first sip, but also capable of whetting our curiosity. It is, so to speak, a wine to reflect on, which gradually comes into its own, in a slowly seductive way.

In appearance, it is not surprisingly a wine from Toro: intensely coloured, bright, dense without becoming opaque, so showing violet hues; still young. On the nose, it is an approachable Toro, of medium to high complexity, intense, warm and fruit-forward as befits a fine Toro wine. It is pleasantly sweetish, with some subtle spicy nuances, of pine needles as well as minerals that lead to an empty bottle before we have even noticed. Its acidity is well-integrated, its good structure and fresh tannins make for a rounded, pleasurable wine that you could never grow tired of. It is not an overly powerful wine, but thoroughly pleasant, generous and well-finished, and comes over as a nicely composed wine to enjoy at any time.

Once convinced of its virtues, we might wonder whose hands have brought this lovely creation to life. On learning his name, we smile knowingly: it is none other than Jean-François Hébrard, an oenologist originally from Bordeaux but with a long and successful career in the Rhone, who was introduced to this region by friends in the profession and who fell in love with and saw the potential of the terroir of Toro, especially those really old vines, away from the river, imbuing their grapes with minerality and complexity as a result of having to penetrate their roots deep into the soil to find water. Thank you, Jean-François.

The winery

Quinta de la Quietud

Quinta de la Quietud

Quinta de la Quietud was founded in 1999 by a French couple, but since 2001 it has been owned by a group of Spanish associates and comes under the technical direction of Jean-François Hébrard, an oenologist originating from Bordeaux with considerable experience in the Rhone. Apart from their younger vineyards, which serve their youngest wine, Corral de Campanas, this winery possesses an absolute treasure: some hundred year-old vines, with enormous potential. They have been...
