Following the winemaking tradition of his Castilian ancestors, Carlos Moro made his dream come true, and in 1988 he founded the Matarromera bodega in Valbuena de Duero (Valladolid) with a clear goal: to prepare quality wines with the most advanced technology and the observe traditional cooking methods. The biggest challenge that Carlos Moro faced was his choice of new barrels for maturing his wines, an initiative that was new in this region at the time. Another key to Matarromera's immediate success was its excellent vineyards, right in the "golden mile" of Ribera del Duero. Today, a quarter of a century later, Carlos Moro continues to design projects, and continues to prepare increasingly sophisticated wines. Matarromera's focus on quality wines stems from the vineyard itself. Thanks to the work started by Carlos Moro's ancestors, loving care of the vineyard has been a constant. Not an artifice in the Bodega but a good wine comes from a top vineyard.

At Grupo Matarromero, sustainability is of paramount importance and the Matarromera Group was chosen in 2007 by IESE [Institute of Higher Business Studies] as the most environmentally friendly organization in Spain. The winery currently generates more energy than it consumes. Each bodega of the Matarromera group is a sustainable building and is designed to utilize natural lighting, provide optimal insulation and effectively use both rainwater and wastewater.
Recently, the Spanish winery has launched a new cosmetic line called Esdor. The products of this line use the antioxidant-rich grape skins that remain after wine making. According to the company, the red grape skins are a source of polyphenols. These are said to be effective against aging and reducing the elasticity of the skin. They keep the skin soft and supple. The cosmetic line includes nourishing creams, moisturizing creams and eye contour products. Natural ingredients are used for cosmetics.
