Founder Don Emilio Moro and Family

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.

Don Emilio Moro

Ribera del Duero, in north-central Spain, is home to a number of the country's best reds, and as the region has garnered acclaim, Bodegas Emilio Moro has earned a place among its leaders.

About Emilio Moro

For over three generations the legendary Bodegas Emilio Moro has dedicated itself to producing exceptional Tempranillo wines from the “golden mile” of the Ribera del Duero. From the birth of its founder Don Emilio Moro in 1932 the winery has prided itself on producing wines that evoke the land from which they were born all in respect of tradition, innovation and a commitment to social responsibility.

Born into a winemaking family Don Emilio Moro learned everything he knew from his father — a passion for the vines, the earth and the care needed to bring them and their grapes to life. During the mass uprooting over the last century, he insisted the family’s old vines be conserved in order to convey the strong terroir they represented. This has lead to wines of great distinction, especially from the vineyards of Sanchomartin and Valderramiro whose vines are over 50-80 years old. Over the years and as his father did he has passed his love for the vines and know-how on to his children, Rubi, Jose, Fabiola and Javier, who today run the winery with the same commitment and conviction that their father once did.

The Bodegas today has around 200 hectares of land, all planted and grafted with the purest clone of the indigenous Tempranillo variety, “Tinto Fino”, recouped from their oldest vineyard. With four separate vineyards (Resalso, Camino Viejo, Sanchomartin and Valderramiro) planted at between 700 and 1000 meters above sea-level, each showcases a distinct soil and climate which in turn produce wines with a distinctive personality and soul. Following their philosophy of commitment and innovation, each wine is produced using a mix of traditional and modern techniques, incorporating the use of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels in the vinification, resulting in pure terroir-driven wines.

The Bodegas Emilio Moro invites you to visit and experience first hand the vineyards, barrel cellars and of course wines by booking a tour and tasting.
