Cabeça de Toiro

A Legacy of Flavor and Quality

In 1996 , a notable milestone in the history of Portuguese winemaking occurred with the launch of the first Cabeça de Toiro Reserva VQPRD Santarém wine. This moment represented the beginning of a journey that would delight palates and celebrate the region's rich winemaking tradition. Cabeça de Toiro Reserva wine, a pioneer in its category, was born from a meticulous and carefully planned process. From 1991, when the first grapes were harvested, until the launch of the wine in 1996, each stage of the production process was carried out with dedication and expertise.The process of creating this remarkable wine involved two distinct stages. The first took place in national oak barrels, where the wine had the opportunity to gain depth and complexity of flavors. The second stage, which took place in the cellar in 1993, contributed to the maturation and harmonization of the unique aromas and flavors.
The variety chosen to bring this memorable wine to life was Castelão, commonly known as João de Santarém, grown in the Almoster vineyards, covering about 4 hectares of land. The combination of the region's soil and climate provided grapes of exceptional quality, which would later translate into a wine of unparalleled character.The visual result of Cabeça de Toiro Reserva is a beautiful dark maroon, which foreshadows the depth and richness of its essence. When enjoyed, it reveals an irresistible aroma of red fruits, triggering anticipation for what is to come.
The flavor of this wine is truly distinctive. Intense and full of nuances, it presents a remarkable character that is softened with a round and captivating finish. This harmonious combination of flavors is the signature that defines Cabeça de Toiro Reserva.Born with the VQPRD Santarém seal, this wine is the expression of a legacy of quality and tradition that spans generations. With each bottle of Cabeça de Toiro Reserva, an ongoing commitment to excellence, innovation, and a love for the art of creating extraordinary wines is celebrated.Since its release, this wine has been a symbol of pride for the region and a tribute to the mastery of the winemakers who created it. Cabeça de Toiro Reserva, more than a wine, is an experience that takes us to explore the senses and immerse ourselves in the richness of the Portuguese terroir.

The Birth of the Claim "CABEÇA DE TOIRO. IT'S AN ATTITUDE"

In 2014, a revolution was about to happen in the world of winemaking, and that revolution had a name: Attitude Girl. Created by Sónia Vinagre, this campaign brought a breath of fresh air to the Cabeça de Toiro brand and challenged industry paradigms.
The innovative new approach celebrated authenticity, self-expression, and culture. Attitude Girl wasn't just a campaign; it was a bold statement: it was a celebration of attitude and individuality.

However, the cycle of innovation never stops, and that is when the new claim emerges: "CABEÇA DE TOIRO. IT'S AN ATTITUDE." This claim not only captured the essence of the brand but also created a bridge between tradition and modernity, between the past and the present.
"IT'S AN ATTITUDE" was not just a phrase; it was an invitation to delve into the heart of a genuinely Portuguese wine. It was a call to explore the flavors and aromas that reflected the country's culture and traditions. It was an affirmation that wine is not just a drink but an experience that captivates all the senses.
With "CABEÇA DE TOIRO. IT'S AN ATTITUDE," the brand has not only evolved but also reaffirmed its commitment to offering wines that transcend the ordinary. And this change, like all great changes, was not just a superficial transformation but rather a deep immersion into the soul of wine and everything it represents.
