Wenceslao Gil Durantez is one of the most dynamic and well-known winemaker of Spain. He was born in a small village in the northwest of Spain in 1955 and he became oenologist in 70´s from when he is know as "Wences". He chose is professional career by chance, he finished his football player career because of an injury and he decided to attend the School of the Vine in Madrid instead. He was one of the first students who first graduated from the School as a vine and oenology specialist. As soon as he finished he started working in Burgos but in 1978 he moved to Toro. Bodegas VEGA SAÚCO was founded in 1991 when after working in many wineries in all the North of Spain (in Ribera del Duero, Cigales or Rueda), he decided to buy vineyards in Toro and a small winery in Morales de Toro. The fact of being founder and president between 1986 to 1996 of the Castilla y Leon Oenologist Association, guarantees his knowledge about the wine sector in all the region and in all Spanish territory. 46471_31514_historia2.jpg He felt in love with Toro area, its ground, its weather, its people and mainly with the grape variety "Tinta de Toro". After 30 years working in the area, he is one of the persons who knows better this variety and its behaviour during vinification and ageing. In fact, he has been innovating in the area since the beginning, he was the first one to produce "Crianza" and "Reserva" wines, in 1991 he started to produce his "Carbonic maceration", he produced the first sweet natural wine in the area awarded with gold medal in several contexts during its first year of live and nowadays he also is experimenting with the firts red sparkling wines from Toro. Currently, his wife Mari Jose, who is the responsible for wine tourism and his daugther Patricia, also Oenologist, are working in the winery with the rest os professional staff who make VEGA SAÚCO big family up.
