Interview of Mr. Yves Laurijssens – Owner – Bodega de Moya for AsiaImportNews – Exclusive
Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
DE MOYA is a family winery founded by Yves and Sofie Laurijssens. Build on a foundation of family values, hard work and tradition.
The family Laurijssens is known for there expertise in successful “turn arounds” in Belgium. Yves and Sofie started the winery with a passion for Food, Family and Fun. If you are lucky enough to be invited one day for a diner by Sofie, you will know exactly what this means.
The approach of the winery DE MOYA is distinct and different. They are famous for “out of the box thinking”. Whether it is for the packaging or winemaking. They always come up with unconventional but simple solutions.
What sort of wines are you producing ?
We produce hight quality wines from indigenous grapes in the Levante area of Spain. (Valencia). We use the grapes Bobal – Monastrell and Merseguera. We have high altitude vineyards between 850 and 1.100m of altitude. Our wines are complex, aromatic and with a good level of tannins and acidity.
How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?
De Moya exports 95% of their wines.
What sort of distributors are your customers ?
All importers have exclusivity for their market. We try to establish a long term relation with our distributors. They are the ambassadors for our wines in their market.
Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ?
DE MOYA is a project in which we explore the vineyards of Valencia, using the local varieties. We combine the best of two worlds. History with the old vines and almost extinct grape varieties, combined with e ciency and modern wine making techniques.
Our goal is to capture the essence of the beautiful mediterranean Levante area in Spain. The old vineyards provide rich, complex, and exciting wines that pair well with food.
Moreover the wines are all accessibly priced. We like to call our wines “a ordable luxury”.
Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
All vineyards are sustainable. Because being in a hot climate it does not take very much effort for us. Also the old vines are good resistant.
Are your wines already distributed in Asia, and if not what are the countries you are looking for new distributors ?
We are not present yet in Asia. So all markets are welcome. But we are first looking for already good established markets. Markets were they are looking for “new” grapes.
Is there anything who want to add about your wines, story or any news ?
Bodega De Moya is the first winery in the Levante area of Spain to bring all the local grapes together, and making wines at a high quality level.
