The Peique family has deep roots in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, in El Bierzo, where Ramón Peique began making wine in 1912. Today the fourth generation family members Luis, Mar and Jorge are honoring the traditions of their predecessors as both farmers and winemakers, verdaderos viticultores (true viticulturers), and they believe their vineyards in Valtuille perfectly represent the natural environment of El Bierzo. While paying homage to their history they also continue to innovate and explore new concepts and ways of working the vineyards and the winery. The Mencia bush vines are nearly 100 years old and the family is deeply focused on the care and maintenance of their vines and soils with an emphasis on sustainability.
