About Bodegas Moraza

Rioja, Spain

We own 23 hectares of vineyards. Eleven parcels are located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and two parcels are in Abalos, and all are certified organic (or in conversion). The vineyards are between 400 and 650 meters above sea level. They range in size between 2,000 square meters and 5 hectares. We have only native varietals of the Rioja Alta, with the majority being Tempranillo, followed by Garnacha, Viura, Graciano, Garnacha Blanca, etc.Our winery was completely built in concrete in 1983 according to the wine-making principles that prevailed in our ancestral house. It has been designed to work with gravity over three floors, so we can avoid over pumping and unnecessary manipulation.
Loyal towards our philosophy of letting the fruit fully express itself, fermentation takes place spontaneously in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts.
