The project of the Bodega Las Moradas de San Martín is a commitment to the oldest winemaking tradition in the southwest sub-area of the Community of Madrid. It was one of the first wineries in this area to bet on the potential of Grenache for winemaking high quality. They have focused their efforts on investigating and recovering vineyards that were disappearing by abandonment.
They have been recovering vineyards rooted in the area but as a bet for the future, maintaining the balance between traditional winemaking, but without renouncing the advantages that modern technology offers to oenology.
One of its major assets are the soils on which the vineyards are settled. The soils of the San Martin subzone are the result of the weathering of granite, gneiss and filonian rocks.
There, there are old Garnacha vineyards, planted in 1930 and formed in a glass frame, with new plantations, selected to complement the quality.
The project is headed by the oenology Isabel Galindo.
