A Passionate Lineage
Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez produces extra limited, handcrafted, artisanal wines from varieties such as Albariño, Mencía, Bastardo, Prieto Picudo and Godello from the Northwestern DOs of Spain. Raúl Pérez is intensely serious about his work, but doesn’t take himself too seriously. He is deeply committed to getting it right, but entirely unafraid of failure. He believes that wine is made in the vineyard, but is undeterred from trying a multitude of strategies to find that vineyard’s voice. As a winemaker, Raul’s mission is to capture all potential from each site he works with and he has an uncanny knack for knowing what a vineyard needs and how to treat that vineyard’s grapes once in the winery to achieve their greatest expression.
