Mauro Bodegas is located in the Duero river valley at Tudela, a few miles to the east of the city of Valladolid. Due to geographical location and local politics, Mauro does not qualify for the Ribera del Duero DO. No matter, the wine has established a world wide reputation for quality in a contemporary style… rather like the “Super Tuscan” reds from Italy. Mauro Bodegas was created in 1978 by Mariano García, the former winemaker at Vega Sicilia. Mariano remains very present at the winery, although vineyard management and winemaking are now in the capable hands of his son Eduardo, and the company run by his other son, Alberto. The Mauro team has also purchased vineyards in nearby Toro, where they make an exciting wine called San Roman. Garmón Continental completes the García Family trilogy of wines and wineries in the Duero Valley – Mauro (Tudela de Duero) and San Román (Toro) – with an exciting and exclusive family run project based on the vineyards, with Tempranillo or Tino Fino as the main protagonist, where production will not exceed 80,000 bottles per year.
