WINERY

Bodegas Frontonio is the personal project of Fernando Mora, Master of Wine, together with two personal friends, Mario López, winemaker at Bodegas Borsao and the lawyer Francisco Latasa. A perfect team of young people, passionate in creating wines and fully committed to sustainable development, human rights and the environment. The project was launched by Fernando Mora in 2008, starting off making the wines at his parents’ garage.

A Micro-winery in the Denomination of Origin I.G.P. Valdejalón, an appellation in the province of Zaragoza, characterized by its peculiar microclimate and soils very poor in organic matter, ideal for the perfect ripening of the Garnacha grape.

Currently they manage 25 ha. dry farmed vineyards of different ages, exposures and altitudes.

The winery is a 200-year old house with an underground cave, where the wines are aged.

100% of the wines arrived at the winery straight after being hand-picked to ensure maximum quality. Work is carried out organically and with the minimal intervention, using technology only when strictly necessary.

The top wines are grape stomped, a technique that prevents the seeds to break, and avoid the bitter taste it he wines, a tradition that they like to practice.
