Good to know

The special thing – extra ordinario – about El Cortez XO is that our cellar master has composed it from his best barrels of different vintages.
This gives El Cortez XO a wonderfully soft, full-bodied character as well as unique depth of flavour.

El Cortez XO is suitable for special occasions as well as for enjoyment on an ordinary day.


Region of Utiel-Requena in the south-east of Valencia

Family tradition since the end of the 19th century

Vineyards at Mediterranean altitude

Bodegas Torre Oria has one of the oldest vineyards in Europe.

The older the vine, the lower its yield and the higher the quality of the grapes. This means that older vines can produce a more intense and concentrated grape flavour. All these geographical and natural characteristics together result in the special quality of our El Cortez XO.

The Valencia region is one of the oldest wine-growing areas in Spain. The aromatic wine style, which can be vinified by blending the best vintages, is unique. Elegant, extravagant, intense, fruity, aromatic and matured under the Valencian sun – characteristics you can taste!
