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.
Can Sumoi dates back to 1645. It has a main winery and three farmhouses dating back to the end of the 17th century where wine used to be made; a house for the tenant farmers; a poultry yard; 20 hectares of vineyard planted with Parellada and Sumoll and 380 hectares of woodland.
Here in this place, which Pepe Raventós has been searching for for years, a new era for the family begins. Pepe goes back to his origins to continue his work that will last generations. And he manages to lead a project that respects the environment, natural vinifications and biodynamics.
