Bodegas Coral Duero was founded in 2003. Jesús Fernández, a visionary working in the marine sector, without any wine background, had the dream to produce the best wine in Toro. As a result, he purchased some30 hectares of old vines, built a state-of-the-art production facility, invested in the latest technology and surrounded himself with wine experts.
The first harvest took place in 2005 and the results came quickly: Coral Duero obtained their first recognitions in 2008, Gold Medal in “Wine and Spirit Awards” and 93 Parker Points in 2017 for wines produced under the brand “Rompesedas”.
In 2019 Jesus decided to retire but his dream lives on. GHI Holdings Limited took over the company in July. A group of wine enthusiasts who share his passion for wine and continue his legacy.
A young dynamic group of wine experts, bringing a breath of fresh air, new idea and a great understanding of the wine market and its demands.
The Coral Duero key principles are: efficient service to our customers. Turning our business cooperation with customers into lifelong friendships.
Coral Duero, was the name given to the winery by the founder Jesús Fernández, a clear reference to his seafaring background.
This name has been preserved over the years as it honours the River Duero which bisects the Toro Region replenishing and giving our vines life.
Coral generates an odd ambiguity: animal or plant? A fun digression that helps us understand the vitality of our vines that have survived for more than 100 years, resisting even the Phylloxera plague.
Nature, unpredictable and capricious as it is, arouses our admiration.
Every single bottle we produce, all the brands we promote represent the profound respect we feel for it. Extremely old vines, hand harvested in a small crates, strict selection and the best technology to produce genuine wines; preserving the character, personality, and tradition of Toro.
We love genuine and authentic wines. We believe in the potential of Toro and our mission consists of sharing these principles all over the world.
