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, 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.

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