A garage, old vines, and a dream: to make the best wine. We don’t want rules; we believe in our land, our grapes, and our senses.
We are Bodegas Frontonio.
Bodegas Frontonio is the result of dreaming, of believing that it is possible, and of working with an objective: our land. It is the result of people who have come together with a common purpose: wine made by people, for people.
In 2008, Fernando Mora started to make wine at home. It was a fairly unusual beginning that led to one of the most exciting and entertaining wine project in Spain. At the same time, Francisco Latasa decided to set up his own firm with just a camping table in his grandparents’ apartment.
They met Mario and began to make wines in Mario’s parents’ garage using vines that had been planted by his father and grandfather. Interpreting each plot, each grape, each manufacturing technique was hard but exciting work. Its result was the emergence of the first vintage of what, in the future, would be Frontonio 2010, of which just 630 bottles were made.
In 2014, we burst forth, thanks to having great vines, consistency, and a great story: the story of our life.
The essence is currently the same: to make garage wine – or, to put it better, to make wine in a garage. Those of you who have visited us are the only ones who know that behind a small retail-wine shop, our secret lies hidden. We seek out and we rehabilitate small, century-old gardens of vines.
Our vineyards, our wines, and our new friends will continue to create our own story.
