Bodegas Toro Albalá was born in the heart of the Cordoba countryside in 1922. Our History is the story of a small farmer, José María Toro Albalá, who had the brilliant idea of storing old wines for the creation of oenological jewels for palates more demanding A philosophy that he knew how to implant in family values and that are still preserved. Considered a feat considering the situation of the time. But, that it has been worth so that the Toro Albalá are in the best tables of all the planet.
Fine wines were the most consumed in the 1930s by an Andalusian population who went to the taverns in the neighborhoods and who mostly worked in the primary sector. The setting of the winery was an old power station in the area, which gave play to the jokes of the Andalusians who called that the wine had electricity or was electric, hence the famous name for the fine "Electric" that still conserves to our days Convent Selection.
These are old wines from several generations that have been aged in barrels of amontillados so that they have a special and free aging, allowing the wine and wood to merge to achieve spectacular results.Our bottling system is called Convento Selección by the system of the Cistercian monks in which they are classified by a system of their own series. All the elaboration is done by hand, seeking to follow the San Benito Recula Standard, "living from the work of the hands".
