And through a policy of continual reinvestment of profits, Bodega Tobía has installed some of the most modern winemaking equipment, whereby allowing Oscar to elaborate unique, high quality wines.
The name Tobía was given as a testament to both their Riojana roots and their personal involvement to the project.
