Bodegas Moraza has been in the Moraza family for six generations, but
it was when Janire Moraza convinced her father and uncle to convert
their 18 hectares of land to organic farming techniques that things got
truly interesting. Today, the varietal wines produced by Janire and
Patricio come from vines located amid thriving biodiversity in San
Vicente de la Sonsierra, Rioja Alta. Unlike many modern Riojas,
tailored to an international market, Bodegas Moraza uses purely
traditional methods, resulting in fresh, oak less and authentic
characteristics. Rather than mixing grapes from different estates to
produce the familiar taste of conventional Rioja, the wines are the
result of the complexity of the terroir.
Grapes are handpicked before spontaneous fermentation & a short
maceration in concrete tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation is done,
it falls by gravity into smaller concrete tanks before ageing for 1
year and a half in concrete tanks and the rest in bottle. No oak.
