Cuevas de Arom is the Aragonese project of Fernando Mora (Arom is Fernando Mora's last name read backwards), the lawyer Francisco Latasa and the winemaker Mario López. It is the result of a close collaboration with the cooperative winery Santo Cristo de Campo de Borja. Mario has been the winemaker of this cooperative since 2017, the year Cuevas de Arom was founded.
The three partners and friends want to offer a more refined profile of the Aragón Grenache, with less extraction and no heavy oak barrel maturation. With this wine they go back to earlier times. In Ainzón, a sub-area within DO Campo de Borja, wine used to be made in caves because of the ideal, naturally cool conditions for winemaking. They try to recreate this natural environment in a space of the cooperative winery Santo Cristo.
The philosophy of winemaker Mora is simple: “We don't have rules, we don't work with recipes, we listen to the grape.” And that leading role is reserved for Garnacha.
