Ribera del Duero is the extreme member of Spain’s top wine family: very hot in summer, freezing cold in winter, yielding continental wines grown on a high plateau.
For almost a century, the Moro family has been growing vines here, at the self-titled Bodegas Emilio Moro.

Behind the name is a real Emilio Moro, born in 1932 – the year that his family started vine growing in the region. Its Finca Resalso vineyard was planted that same year. Fast-forward to 1982, and the launch of the Ribera del Duero DO, which was created with fewer than a dozen wineries.
