Emilio Moro

When the Moro family began growing grapes over 120 years ago, they sold wine to the likes of Vega
Sicilia and other quality-driven producers. In 1988 the family produced wine bearing his own name
and today the wines of Emilio Moro have become benchmarks of the Ribera del Duero as is proven by
regular high scores from publications such as The Wine Spectator.

The bodega currently owns 200 hectares (490 acres), planted 100% with the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)
grape variety. Besides the own vineyards, Bodegas Emilio Moro uses grapes from a few long-term
suppliers, with a severe control made by the winery all year long. At some of the vineyards, the altitude
of the region at 750 metres to 1000 metres plays a major part in the slow development of each vine
and therefore the balance of fruit sugars and acidity as the growing season progresses.

The clear aim of Emilio Moro’s viticultural policy is to produce grapes of the highest possible quality
which will reflect in the quality of its wines. This approach has led to the development of viticultural
techniques which pay the greatest respect both to the environment and to the vine plant itself.
All the grapes are hand picked.
