DO Toro

Bodegas Covitoro Commitment to quality implies fulfilment of strict current standards which are set forth by the Regulations which govern the Toro Designation of Origin. These regulations apply the entire process with specific norms that begin with the implantation of the vineyard and its associated cultural practices and ends with the commercialisation of the bottled product; detailing, in each case, the qualification standards of the product, the labelling, the harvesting, the production and the shipment of the product, etc., which together guarantee the origin and certification of the product.
