Vatan Tinta de Toro is made with the Tinta de Toro grape, an ancient clone of Tempranillo that is native to D.O. Toro. It is because of this noble grape that the wines of Toro were famous in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries.

The grapes for Vatan come from a vineyard planted in 1943, with some grapes within this vineyard that were planted in 1910. The soils are very sandy, intermixed with alluvial gravel. Six to nine feet below the surface, there is a red clay subsoil, which acts as a reservoir of moisture, which is crucial in this arid region. After fermentation in stainless steel, it is transferred to new French oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 22 months.
