Bodegas Mauro expanded its business to the lands of the Toro region at the end of the 1990’s with its San Román wines.
The García family’s interest in Toro began in 1995, monitoring various plots of old vineyards in the northeast of this Designation of Origin region. In 1996, they purchased their first vineyards and land to move further into this project in the towns of Pedrosa del Rey, Villaester and San Román de Hornija in the province of Valladolid. The winery in Pedrosa del Rey was inaugurated in 1997 and the vineyard surface area was expanded a few years later in Morales de Toro.
San Román Bodegas y Viñedos is Mariano García and his family’s second winery in the Duero Valley following Bodegas Mauro (1980). The business has been expanded with Garmón Continental (their exclusive new project in Ribera del Duero which began with the 2014 vintage).
Three different approaches to Duero Valley viticulture based on respect for each territory’s unique characteristics to create a unique winemaking philosophy.
San Román spreads over 140 hectares of organically-grown vineyards which are being converted to biodynamic viticulture production in order to increase the organic matter and foster biodiversity in the soil.
The varieties and plots are harvested and vinified separately to respect the uniqueness of each vineyard.
