Matarredonda was established as recently as 2001 in the DO Toro. The project itself, however, dates back to 1998 with the purchase by some wine lovers of 18 hectares of very old Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) vines in the El Pego area. These vines, in three plots of sandy, stony soil, are ungrafted, meaning they are on their own roots, not Phylloxera resistant crossings, and somehow they had survived.
The first wine was made in 2001, but unfortunately the vines were hit by a hard frost which reduced production by 80%. The wine, called "Libranza" was good though, and it was soon joined by a little brother "Juan Rojo". The bodega is very modern using both oak vats and stainless steel for fermentation and French oak barrels for ageing. They are constantly researching and developing in the search for ever better wines, but quantities will always be limited.
