The wine

Vine growing and wine making run in the Peique family. Ramón Valle planted the first grapevines between 1930 and 1950, guided by instinct and forming a network of micro-parcels, mainly on slopes, creating a Mencía grape paradise, where work is only possible by hand. The soils of stone and clay, as well as a transitional climate between Atlantic and continental, endow this cellar's wines with great freshness and elegance, because, as Jorge Peique says, 'You have to take great care of a wine if it bears your family name; it's one of the things to feel most proud of'.

This Mencia wine is produced with grapes from 70-90 year old family owned grapevines. It is then aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels before standing for a further 15 months in the bottle. The Peique Selección Familiar is an elegant red wine, with ripe black fruit, notes of scrubland and a complex minerality. Round, long, and balanced on the palate, a wine with personality and structure, lingering and evocative... a classic Bierzo wine.

Jorge Peique was one of these winemakers. In 1999 he founded the Bodegas Peique winery in Valtuille de Abajo where...
