Cuevas de Arom

Cuevas de Arom is a project put together by three friends who want to show just how good the distinctive, dry-farmed garnacha grapes of the Campo de Borja region of Aragon can be. Fernando Mora MW, Fernando Larasa and winemaker Mario López source their garnacha fruit from the members of the Santo Cristo cooperative where Mario is winemaker, bringing the harvest into a bijou winery built into a huge old concrete tank in the cooperative cellars, evoking the traditional cave cellars of the region, and leading to Cuevas de Aroms t-shirt logo ‘we produce high-altitude garnacha underground’. Here they use open-topped fermentation tanks and apply different maceration times to grapes from the various terroirs, and generally use whole bunches in the fermentation. Ageing takes place in a mixture of vessels, from concrete tanks and concrete eggs to barrels and foudres.
