Bodegas Emilio Moro has the perfect platform for producing great wines: family tradition (José and Javier Moro are the third generation of vine growers), a strategic site (in the heart of the Ribera del Duero), pure clones of the indigenous grape, excellent quality soils (clay, chalk and gravel) and an ideal orientation.
The winery currently owns some 200 hectares of vineyards, planted and grafted with an excellent Tempranillo clone recouped from their oldest vineyards. Some of their most famous pagos (specific, single vineyards) are Resalso (1.02 ha.), planted the year that Emilio Moro was born (1933), with deep, fresh soils; Valderramiro (4.2 ha.), containing the winery’s oldest bush vines and the birthplace of its great vino de pago, Malleolus de Valderramiro; Sancho Martín (0.7 ha.), with splendid conditions for ripening, offers tannic wines with definite acidity, well-suited to ageing; and Camino Viejo (7.5 ha.), where Malleolus came into being.
The Moro family also runs another winery in the Ribera del Duero Cepa 21.
