The original Bodegas Fariña was established in 1942 by Salvador Fariña, approximately 9km from Zamora in Casaseca de las Chanas, in the region of Castilla y León.
Over the years the Fariña family have been significant contributors to the development of quality Spanish wine in the Toro region, and Manuel Fariña, the son of Salvador, was a key player in the creation of the Toro DO in 1987. Soon after the Toro DO was established Fariña built their second bodega within the DO, on the outskirts of the town of Toro, in order for its wines to qualify as Toro DO wines.
Today Bodegas Fariña is the largest privately owned and family operated estate in the region, and the long standing family commitment to produce quality Spanish wines continues under the guidance of Manuel Fariña and his sons.
Bodegas Fariña’s wines are considered to be some of the best examples of the Toro region style, which were aptly described by Robert Parker when he commented that ‘Fariña makes wines with explosive aromas, full body, fine balance and enormous fruit’. Their 100% Tinta de Toro
wines are sold under the Colegiata (joven) and Gran Colegiata (crianza and reserva) labels – ‘Colegiata’ refers to the Romanesque collegiate church in the town of Toro.
