The Producer: La Casa Vieja (Humberto Toscano)
Humberto Toscano grew up in San Antonio de las Miñas on a ranch older than time itself. After a stint in the US, he craved the peaceful life back at the ranch with its ancient vines, untouched by chemicals. Restoring three hectares of vineyards, he creates the most unique wines, all from the ranch’s own fruits. His winemaking style is pure and hands-on – think long macerations, aged in old barrels, and handmade labels. Notably, he keeps it natural – no added SO2 at any point. With old-school Misión and Palomino vines (some might even be 120+ years old), Humberto recently added new Misión and Garnacha vines to the mix.
