Elias Mora

The bodega was founded in 2000 by Victoria Benavides and the name of the winery honours the former owner of the vineyards: Elías Mora. The oenologist is one of Spain's undisputed winegrowers.

The Toro region is located west of the DO Rueda and the DO Ribera del Duero at about 800 meters above sea level, about 100 kilometres from the north-eastern border of Portugal. The main grape variety, Tinta de Toro, synonymous with Tempranillo, has been producing here unique wines for 2000 years. Their characteristics are clearly different from those of the wines from Ribera del Duero. The vines are traditionally grown "en vaso" in an extremely dry and harsh climate on stony, sandy soils, so that the leaves protect the fruit from the scorching sun. Less than 400 millimetres of rain fall per year, the summers are hot and the winters are extremely cold.

The 15 hectares of vines of the Elías Mora winery have never been affected by the devastating phylloxera plague, thanks to the nature of the soil. All plants are so-called direct carriers or root-true vines, i.e. not grafted onto American rootstock vines. The oldest ones are about 80 years old. Each plot is individually worked according to the age of the vines, orientation and soil type and, if necessary, vinified separately. All work is done by hand, from winter pruning to careful harvesting. The winery also obtains selected grapes from selected grape growers in the region.

The vineyards for the Vega Sindoa wines are in the heart of Navarre, in the Valle de Nekeas, the valley where the wine lives, as the locals say. The 6th leg of the pilgrim’s path to Santiago de Compostela leads through this charming hilly landscape, where wine has been grown for centuries.
