The origin of the winery dates back to 1891, the year its founder, Emilio Moro, was born in Pesquera de Duero (Valladolid), a privileged enclave in the Ribera de Duero surrounded by vineyards. Emilio Moro, grandfather of the current owners, imparted to his son the love of winemaking, and he in turn passed it on to his children. Three generations later, José & Javier Moro take care of the winery that currently owns 200 hectares of its own vineyards, planted and grafted with an excellent tempranillo clone recovered from their oldest vines. Some of their best-known vineyards are: Resalso, planted the year Emilio Moro was born (1932), with deep, cool soil; Valderramiro, with the winery’s oldest bush vines and birthplace of their great single-estate wine Malleolus de Valderramiro; Sancho Martin, with excellent ripening conditions, providing tannic wines with a marked acidity, ideal for ageing; and Camino Viejo.
