Join us for a very special Wine Tour on Saturday 26 June at 18:45.
The history of Toro Albalá begins in 1922, when José María Toro Albalá began making wines as treasures for future generations. José María understood that the sugars and concentration of flavour he was achieving in his harvests would develop beyond his own lifetime.
Now, thanks to his foresight and craftsmanship, and the inherent qualities in his land and vines, we can continue to enjoy these Don PX wines almost a century later.
We will be tasting the following wines (the shelf prices in brackets are for reference):
We’ll look at the Montilla-Moriles region, a history of the PX grape, and the Toro Albalá winery, but this Wine Tour is also a journey in time and history – so if you would like to contribute an important historical occasion which took place in any of these vintages, please let us know in advance and we can highlight it as we taste.
£5.50 – £76.00
The Wine Tour tasting pack is a unique combination of the following items:
Don PX 2018
Don PX Gran Reserva 1994
Don PX Selección 1976
Don PX Convento Selección 1958
Don PX Convento Selección 1929
Wine Tour dates to 2007 and our early days in the wine industry. At the regular exhibitions and wine fairs we attended, we found that our presentations were better than those of the businesses around us. We would usually end up with a big crowd of customers enjoying our wines and what we were telling them.
At the time we didn’t have deep pockets to splash out on large quantities of free samples – but we also didn’t want to turn away customers – so we created a product out of the presentation. And so Wine Tour was born. The punters were very happy to pay for it, and we were happy to be able to present and sell our wines.
Our range then was much smaller than it is now, so the format has changed, but the name has stuck, and continues to represent the innovative streak which has always characterised our business.
