It is a wine Group in which the various wineries that comprise it maintain their own history, personality and positioning, while at the same time, being governed by a common philosophy and working methods, based on quality, innovation, modernity and the pursuit of customer satisfaction. A group that grows and changes to adapt to new market trends, tastes and customer needs.

The origins of Orot date back to 1980, although it was in 1997, visualising the development and potential of the Toro D.O., when it was decided to build a winery to process their own production in the town of Toro, nerve canter of the Appellation.
