Nicola Thornton was an English student who went to Spain on an exchange year for her studies but loved it so much she never went home. She lives in Toro with her husband and daughters. After years of working with Toro wines, she set up Spanish Palate with winemaker Alvaro Martín. Wines are sourced from regions around Spain from small independent wineries which produce wines which express their own unique and regional character. Spanish Palate is a collection of wines from small, independently owned wineries that want to show their wines to the world. Each display unique, regional character and have a wonderful sense of place. The wines are wines with soul, wines with art, wines that stir up emotions.
