Ego Bodegas Gorú

Ego Bodegas Gorú


  • The vineyard site is located in the D.O.P. of Jumilla.
  • Vegan certified and Gluten Free.

Varietal Composition: Monastrell, Syrah, Petit Verdot

Elaboration: The harvest is done by hand at the optimum ripening time. Each grape variety was separately fermented and macerated with their own peels during 15/20 days at a controlled temperature no higher than 28º C. The blend then spends 4 months in American oak barrels before bottling.

Tasting Notes: Deep-red colored wine with purple edges, stands out because of its intense aroma of red and ripe fruit, pleasantly creamy, accompanied with touches of toasted tones. It is fruity and flavorful in the mouth, meaty and toasted with soft and ripe tannins.

Santos Ortiz, of Spanish origin, and Ioana Paunescu from Romania, started from scratch in 2011, “con palicos y canicas” as they say in the region. This means that they were short of financial resources, but had an extraordinary talent for creating wines and coordinating financial, marketing and sales department. “We launched a Project doing the opposite to what the books tell you or what you see in the industry.”

Aſter almost 6 months looking for a place to set up, they fell in love with a spectacular farm in an area known as the carpenter’s place, an elevated area of bunkers which had everything they wanted – it was high up so they could enjoy the beauty of the landscape and surrounded by their vineyards (Monastrell), which are well cared for and older than their combined ages.Located just a few kilometers away from the historical city of Jumilla, the winery has 35 hectares of vineyard, housing mostly native varieties like Monastrell.

Since the beginning, Ego Bodegas has taken a contemporary twist on wine-making  and combined traditional methods with modern techniques. Their grapes are fermented separately in steel tanks, with capacities ranging from 4,000 to 12,000 kilograms.

Each bottle of wine from Ego bodegas carries the principles on which the winery was founded upon: Ego, Talento, and Infinito.

Ego : The concept of I. Talento : The ability to perform and carry out a task. Infinito : The power to dream without borders.
