Located in the town of Pesquera in the Valladolid district, Emilio Moro is a family-owned winery with over 120 years of winemaking history in Ribera del Duero. The family owns 173 acres of vineyards located in several parcels in Pesquera del Duero. The average age of the vines is 10 to 25 years, and the vineyards are located at high altitude -1,950 feet - on the banks of the Duero River. The first vineyards were planted in 1932 in the year of the founder, Emilio Moro's birth and the winery works with a pure clone of the Tinto Fino transplanted from their earliest vines. Soils are clay with gravel and chalk, and the area is endowed with the harsh, continental climate that defines the unique character of Ribera wines.
Jose Moro, president of Bodegas Emilio Moro and Cepa 21, as well as the Emilio Moro Foundation, was born on September 18th, 1959. From childhood he developed a love for the world of winemaking, instilled from his grandfather and his father. After completing his studies in chemistry and developing himself personally and professionally in field of viticulture, in 1989 along with his brothers and sisters he took over the winery that bears the name of its founder Emilio Moro, in Pesquera de Duero (Valladolid). Today Bodegas Emilio Moro follows a common philosophy and policy based on three fundamental pillars: tradition, innovation and social responsibility. It is this concept of social responsibility and sensitivity that led the Moro Family to create the Emilio Moro Foundation which, under the slogan Wine helps water, is working on improving living conditions for those most in need.
