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, and especially its Viñedos Viejos, with great freshness and elegance.
Matured for 12 months in French oak barrels and with a further 12 months of repose in bottle, the Peique Viñedos Viejos is a red that's elegant, with ripe black fruit, tobacco notes, leather and paprika, ample and flavoursome on the palate, sophisticated, with a velvety feel...: A Bierzo in the classic style.

vino sabroso, con bastante profundidad y persistente en boca. la rudeza de la region se ha suavizado con el tiempo y los taninos igualmente. pero creo que no se mejorará mas, al contrario. es tiempo de beberlo.

At the end of the nineteen nineties, however, a new generation of oenologists rediscovered the oldest vines and hidden treasures of this region and applied suitable wine-production methods to make the most of the true potential of the Mencia variety. Jorge Peique was one of these winemakers. In 1999 he founded the Bodegas Peique winery in Valtuille de Abajo where...
