San Roman, Malvasia, Toro

Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos was founded by Mariano Garcia in 1997 and owns 100 hectares in the villages of Villaester, San Roman de Hornija and Morales, planted mainly with Tinta de Toro, the local clone of Tempranillo. In recent years the winemaking team has, under Eduardo Garcia’s (Mariano’s son) direction, been producing wines in a fresher style, harvested at the optimum moment to balance freshness and richness. This leads off with intense attention to farming exceptional grapes using organic methods and some biodynamic concepts and practices. Grapes for San Roman, their original wine, have been harvested earlier and see shorter maceration times during fermentation.
