About Raúl Pérez
Sensationally talented in both the vineyard and the winery from a remarkably early age, Raúl Pérez crafted his very first vintage for his family’s estate in 1994 at the age of 22. Immediately staking a claim as one of the most progressive and exciting personalities in the country, Pérez has been at the forefront of what experts have declared “The New Spain” since the very inception of the movement.
Finding himself in need of autonomy and the freedom to express his own vinous signature, Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez was founded in 2005. Almost instantaneously elevating itself to the position of benchmark estate in the appellation of Bierzo, the extraordinarily energetic and ambitious winemaker quickly expanded his sphere of influence out to the regions of Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra and Tierra de Léon. As famous and prestigious as his name has become, Pérez remains proudly based in the Bierzo village of Valtuille de Abajo – a stone’s throw from his family’s estate.
