The Peique family has deeps roots in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, in El Bierzo, along with a rich family history of farming vineyards and making wine – verdaderos viticultores (true viticulturers). In 1999, after having grown up surrounded by the traditions of their ancestors, siblings Mar, Jorge and Luis, with their parents Sagrario and Luis, set out to establish their own Bodega.
Innovation is part of the Peique surname, understanding it as the creation of new concepts or ways of working and understanding the vineyard based on tradition. We believe that our vineyards in Valtuille perfectly represents the landscape and the natural environment, the soils and the sunshine. The influence of a partially continental, mild and temperate Atlantic climate, with minimal rainfall in summer and abundant rainfall in winter, contributes to an optimal vine cycle and grape ripening. The vines are planted between 1,500 and 2,000 feet in elevation, which minimizes the risk of late frosts.
The Peique family farms Mencia and Godello vineyards that are up to 100 years old. The Bodega pays respect to the land by caring for their precious soils with eyes and hands focused on sustainability.
