José and Javier Moro, sons of prestigious winemaker and businessman Emilio Moro, are both carrying their late father’s legacy, as well as deciding to start their own project in Ribera del Duero. This is how Cepas 21 came to be over than ten years ago. This is an ambitious winery that right from the beginning was laying the foundations of modern viticulture and producing pure wines with the 21st century wine lover in mind. Working to their motto “If you like wine, you understand wine” they create pleasant, accessible and cheerful wines with the aim of demystifying the world of wine and inviting modern consumers to be seduced by the joy that a good glass of wine can bring.

This is exactly what they have done with Horcajo, a single-variety Tinto Fino wine, whose name honours the plot of the same name where the grapes come from. Located in Castrillo de Duero, a town in Valladolid (Castilla y León), these vineyards are excellent for vine cultivation thanks to the diversity and fertility of the clay-limestone soils and the optimal climate conditions. When the grapes reach the winery, they ferment at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and then undergo malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels for 30 days. Finally, the wine ages for 18 months in those same barrels.

Although this is one of the most recent wines in the Moro brothers’ collection, Horcajo has already found itself among the top wines from the D.O. Ribera del Duero. An iconic wine from a winery that showcases the maximum expression of a very unique terroir with elegance and exuberance.

The history of the Moro family is the paradigm of the history of Ribera del Duero. With a family tradition and a path to sustained success, where the Tinto Fino variety is the main character. Cepa 21 is a winemaking and architectural project that already has a lot to say about the current and daring nature of new wines aimed at a seasoned , cultured consumer, open to discover new organoleptic sensations. Where innovation hovers over tradition, the modern versus the classic, and subtleness versus robustness. With unique wines, balanced, of intense bouquet and a pure palate.

Ribera del Duero wine is one of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Red wines made with Tinto Fino variety grapes, with highly complex aromas, fine on the palate and with a great storage capacity. The wines of Ribera del Duero present a perfect balance between the vividness of the fruit and the refinement of the wood, which has led to them obtaining a well-deserved international acclaim.
