The aim of this project has been to build a modern, functional, minimalist new winery drawing on the savoir faire acquired over the years by several generations of the Moro family in the making of modern-style wines.The Moro brothers, José and Javier, wanted to bring some of their best friends into the project and get them to experience some of the thrills and excitement of being part of the world of wine.The winery, which nestles in the middle of fifty hectares (around 124 acres) of its own Tinto Fino vines (the purest Tempranillo clone), is modern and equipped to bring out the very best of one of the finest varietals in the world.This new wine, Cepa 21, is aimed at consumers who have the expertise and open-mindedness to discover new tasting characteristics and who also appreciate the subtlety and elegance of a wine that is soft and sweet on the palate with bold aromatics. Cepa 21 is the pure expression of the wine-making revolution that has been taking place in our country over the last years.
