Located in San Román de Hornija, a hamlet of Valladolid within the D.O. Toro, there is the winery Elías Mora, and at the head of it, the viticulture Victoria Benavides, faithful to a way to elaborate the wine in the most traditional way possible.
Founded in 2000, the winery owes its name to the former owner of the first vineyard acquired, Elías Mora. All its wines are made from the predominant grapes in the area, the Tinta Fina de Toro. All of them red, and owe their unique character, not so much to the elaboration as to the different "terroir" from where they come.
They are vineyards cultivated in a traditional way, in glass, some of them very old, pre-phylloxeric, and they settle in high ground, on poor soils, in an extreme climate, with great variation of temperature not only seasonal, but day to night, and where the rain is scarce (400 mm). The sum of these factors shape the quality of the grapes. 17 hectares of own vineyard, and 76 more of several vine growers, make up the cultivated area. Its 70% wine is destined for export, with Europe and America being its main destinations.
