In 1970, Toro Albalá decided to revive a practically extinct species of carnation, the “reventón granaino”, considered the biggest, most elegant, red and perfumed variety of all the Dianthus species.  Since then, thousands of cuttings have been grown in the winery every year and are given free to anyone who asks.  For greater protection, they are supplied in two pots, hence the name “Dos claveles”, meaning “two carnations”.  Nowadays they are present in most Andalusian courtyards or “patios”.
