Founded in 1957, Bodegas Torremorón is a cooperative of growers who wish to produce an authentic and pure example of high elevation Tempranillo.
The Torremorón winery is located in the small town of Quintanamanvirgo (population: 94). Quintanamanvirgo has two businesses: the bar and the winery. The people are proud of their common wine heritage, and everyone in the town works for the winery. If you ever want to experience and taste the authentic personality of Ribera del Duero, head directly for this town and ask for Fernando de la Cal. When you meet him, ask him to show you his vineyards and his family cave where wine was made in the 1800's.
Torremorón’s vineyards are close to the town of Quintanamanvirgo at an elevation of 824 meters (2,703 feet) within the north central part of Ribera del Duero, within the province of Burgos. Many of Ribera's top bodegas farm vineyards here. The Ribera del Duero's eastern sub-region has a cooler climate than Rueda or Toro, due to its higher altitude. The wines are usually darker, more concentrated and aromatic than wines made in the western part of Ribera del Duero. The soil is primarily sand with small particles of clay and a limestone subsoil. The soil is deep and compact in texture with a balanced pH factor contributing to crisp acidity on the palate. The climate plays a greater role than the soil, in this case, in revealing the qualities of these wines.
