Many believe the region of Ribera del Duero became world-famous around 30 years ago when several wine critics and consumers began noticing that a handful of winemakers were consistently producing rich, succulent and award-winning wines. Many also believe that one of the best within this group of enological masterminds is that of Emilio Moro, who has been making wine in the region for over three generations. The young Emilio Moro began working in his father’s vineyards at the tender age of 14, and while many of the techniques used to make wine back then have now been replaced by new advances in technology, little has changed in the way they work their vineyards. If you were to ask Mr. Moro today, he would tell you that the same blood, sweat and tears are used to farm their land and the same respect and nurturing are given to their 200 hectares of estate-owned vines.
All of the wine produced by Bodegas Emilio Moro is made from the venerated Tinto Fino, or Tempranillo, grape variety and the chalky clay soil located around the winery is said to be perfect for growing this variety as it gives the final product – the wine you will get to savor in your glass during a tour of the winery – a silky, almost velvety mouth feel.
The combination of the right soil and grape type mixed with the loving care and hard work produced by the Emilio Moro family have been the winery’s recipe for success for many years now, and is what has allowed the winery to prosper where many others have failed. We greatly look forward to taking you on a VIP tour of Bodegas Emilio Moro so that you may decide for yourself if you agree that Bodegas Emilio Moro represents Ribera del Duero at its finest.
