Legado de Orniz is a beatiful family fusion of Spanish and Argentine winemaking styles launched by Enriqueta Celemín, a Spaniard from Toro, and Diego Ribbert from Mendoza, Argentina. Both Enriqueta and Diego are certified winemakers and agricultural engineers, in addition to life partners. They met while working in the winemaking department of Bodegas Numanthia in 2009 and decided to launch their own project taking advantage of Enriqueta’s faimly’s centenary vineyards in Toro’s most sough-after terroir of San Roman de Hornija.
