PEIQUE || The Peique family is from Valtuille de Abajo, a village of fewer than 200 people situated at the foot of the Castro de la Ventosa in El Bierzo. In 1999, siblings Jorge (the youngest brother and winemaker), Mar (middle sister and manager), and Luis (eldest brother and viticulturalist) established Bodegas Peique with their parents Luis and Sagrario, based on vineyards that were planted by their grandparents between 1930 and 1950. The pursuit of quality through technology and craftsmanship is the defining characteristic of the family - maintaining a century-old-tradition while embracing innovation.
BIERZO || Though technically in the region of Castilla y León, Bierzo is often referred to as the “Gateway to Galicia.” The Bierzo DO has a unique microclimate which is a hybrid of the surrounding areas. On the one hand, it is similar to the climate of Galicia with regard to humidity and rainfall, and on the other, it has the hot, dry climate of Castile. This leads to wines that are more structured than the light, fruity reds of Galicia but leaner than the powerful styles of the Duero.
