BODEGAS EMILIO MORO
Emilio Moro is a third-generation, family-owned winery with over 120 years of winemaking history in Ribera del Duero. Emilio Moro, the hombre, grew up treading grapes and racking wine with his father in his native village of Pesquera de Duero.
They have 200 hectares planted in a pure clone of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) variety taken off their earliest vines, and the vineyards look down from an elevated position 600 metres above the Duero River. A harsh continental climate and a hardy bed of clay, gravel and chalk add the finishing touches to the unique character of these Duero expressions.
Nowadays, the winery is run by Emilios sons, José and Javier, but well leave the final word to Don Emilio Moro himself: "Wine is an art, if you know how to listen it speaks to you, telling you when it needs racking and when it needs to rest. It is like a living being that you have to understand, look after and care for."
