Bodegas Moraza traces back six generations in San Vicente de la Sonsierra where Tempranillo and Garnacha grew brilliantly in the clay-limestone soil. From the beginning, a respect for the land and environment was an important part of the philosophy that built Moraza.
Moraza avoids herbicides, pesticides and synthetic chemical fertilizers to ensure a minimum environmental impact. In this way, the wine has distinct personality and expresses the land, climate and tradition that defines the winery.
Casa Monte Pío
Established in 1979, Casa Monte Pío is a Rías Baixas family winery located in Ribadumia. Pablo Martínez became the newest oenologist in 2014.
At Casa Monte Pío, each harvest is treated with meticulous care to produce the best grapes possible. Every vine is an individual in itself and the earth is a living being. This means that each bottle of wine contains the mystery of the land and its unique grapes; an inimitable light and aroma; an incomparable tradition.
"Our winemaking philosophy is to use sustainable farming methods to ensure that the wine is made with utmost respect to the environment while leveraging modern-day technology and expertise.
This concept continues throughout the winery and through the production of the wines.
Viticulture practices with strict regulations and a passion for winemaking have led Eccoci Wine to become the first Spanish winery to be Carbon Zero certified. The result is a collection of high quality artisan wines that are terroir-driven, with a sense of place."
