Lui & William Wines
Toro, Duero Spain.
Luí & William Wines is a project of two brothers united by a family winemaking tradition: Luis Ángel and Guillermo. The winery was born in 2005, with the production of wines from the family vineyards, which are on the banks of the Duero river, on sandy and rocky soils, with little wealth but great potential.
Each bottle of Lui & William wines unites family values, small-scale production advantages, modern winemaking technology, and traditional grape growing techniques with a special focus on the 'Tinta de Toro' varietal. This varietal is the region's point of difference and inspiration for the family at Lui & William wines.
The family of Guillermo Diez has been growing grapes in Toro for generations, but he is the first formal winemaker in his family. After completing his major in Oenology, Diez created his first vintage in 2003, and his wines are amongst the best in the region. Practically garage wines, only 85000 bottles are made. Everything is carefully crafted by hand. The winery is located in the prestigious “pago” of La Cascajera, in the heart of Toro.
The estate vineyards are planted on the banks of the Duero River, in grave land limestone soils. This part of Zamora is one of the very few places in Spain where Phylloxera never took hold. For our top wine (Fighting Bulls), we use only grapes that come from ungrafted vines that are more than 100 years
THE TERROIR AND GROWING REGIONS OF TORO DUERO
The family-owned vineyards are planted on the banks of the River Duero in gravel and limestone soils which create perfect growing conditions. Following a rigorous selection and control process, each parcel of the vineyard is harvested at its peak of ripeness and vinified separately allowing Lui & William wines to produce wines that represent the individual parcels of land they come from. All are 100% organic and biodynamically grown and certified.
